To the new school board and Libby Lolli

A press conference at 5pm on Friday, after a day in court the day before.

Constant controversy since the people of the district elected 4 new people, to try to bring order to a district that had been in chaos for the two years previous.

No other interviews. No public comment. No listening for the first 100 days as Mohamed Al-Hamdani promised at the updayton candidates night…

just more of the same.

Beware the rush to hire. Every talented leader I’ve ever met says hire slow, fire fast.

I’ve put in a request for all the research they’ve done on Dr. Lolli. You’d think they’d have asked her former employers for her evaluations. We’ll see if they have anything to turn over on Monday- by 5pm.

A real board wouldn’t hire a superintendent for 3 years without due diligence, right?

But, alas- that’s not what we have.

This morning on my run, Stevie Wonder gave me the perfect answer to this board and this about to be superintendent:

You Haven’t Done Nothin’

We are amazed but not amused
By all the things you say that you’ll do
Though much concerned but not involved
With decisions that are made by you

[Chorus 1] But we are sick and tired of hearing your song
Telling how you are gonna change right from wrong
Cause if you really want to hear our views
“you haven’t done nothing

[Verse 2] It’s not too cool to be ridiculed
But you brought this upon yourself
The world is tired of pacifiers
We want the truth and nothing else

[Chorus 1]

[Chorus 2] Jackson 5 join along with me say
Doo doo wop – hey hey hey
Doo doo wop – wow wow wow
Doo doo wop – co co co
Doo doo wop – naw naw naw
Doo doo wop – bum bum bum
Doo doo wop

[Verse 3] We would not care to wake up to the nightmare
That’s becoming real life
But when mislead who knows a person’s mind
Can turn as cold as ice un hum

[Chorus 1] Why do you keep on making us hear your song
Telling us how you are changing right from wrong
Cause if you really want to hear our views
“you haven’t done nothing
Yeah

[Chorus 2] [Outro] Doo doo wop – stand up be counted, say
Doo doo wop – co co co
Doo doo wop – ow
Doo doo wop – bum bum bum
Doo doo wop – ah hum

ah hum… is anybody listening.

Lolli wop, dum dum dum,

Lolli wop,  dumb dumb dumb
