Once again, the partisan Stamford Board of Education is beginning the 2022-23 school year with more chaos. The BOE has voted in Lori Rhodes to fill the vacancy of a recently departed assistant superintendent, who does not align with the values of Stamford residents, with children in the city’s school system.
As residents, parents and future parents, get ready to be informed as Ms. Rhodes will double-down on the dumbing down of our children. Central office has not changed in the wake of parent pushback. They continue to push an agenda that will not benefit Stamford public school students. Here we go again. Central office is continuing to disregard the voices of the parents of the schoolchildren in Stamford. If we do not change the partisan majority that has taken over the BOE, every year until we vote the right people to the BOE, we will continue as parents to to use all of our limited and valuable time writing emails and going to board meetings getting central office to understand they are our children and we will make the education decisions for them. It is not necessary that we change a proven education system for an unproven education-killing agenda.
