There was a short [Board of Education] meeting before the [Metro] Council meeting. Sometimes I feel like the only one who questions anything on the agenda.Sounds to me like Kay may see herself as the only critical thinker on the Board of Education or at least the only one conscientious enough to get more information. Here's an alternative possibility: maybe she faces a steeper learning curve than others, having little or no experience with public schools. That's why those volumes of reading materials in boxes that they sent her can be a little overwhelming. And that's why she has more questions than others. But to suggest that she is the only member who questions anything sounds farfetched to me.
Sometimes I feel like the only one who tries to come up with the top ten questions that I would ask if I were in Kay Brooks' position:
- Since I don't support slavery ... errrr ... I mean, public education, why am I here again?
- Can Michael Craddock put votes together for me in August like he did in May?
- Since feeding children does not really count as education, can we cut the budget and just bring them ice water at lunch time?
- You thought I was serious when I advocated open meetings? Do you understand irony?
- Will you please watch your language?
- Why did I ever request that laptop in the first place?
- Are my meetings with Pedro becoming too much like victory jigs with Satan?
- If I don't need a nurse for my home school, why does Metro need them in public schools?
- Did I thank dear Ludye nearly enough for his courageous vote for me in exchange for a back alley?
- Why do I have to keep hearing about my predecessor's accomplishments?
