The reason that the school board does not want more parent involvement on the board is simple. Parents tend to do what is best for their child, not all of the children. Parent board members in the past have pushed for subjects that they want for their child (Japanese, Interpetive Dance) and not for the majority of students (Spanish, Music). Parent board members also use their influence to gain favoritism for their children. For instance a newly elected board members son did not make the golf team this past season and she went to the coach and "persuaded" him to put her son on the team (classy move). In my opinion all members of the school board should be non-parents. Imagine a board full of qualified people that have no personal agenda. Parents can come to all meetings and have a voice just as they always have. Parents are no different here than anywhere else in wanting what is best for "their" child. The Charter School is an A rated school that is extremely well run. While that is no reason to become complacent, those individuals that are looking to "stir" things up should stay at City Hall meetings. There is plenty of work to do there.
