The job of a School Board Trustee must be frustrating indeed… what kind of fool would consider taking on such a task!
Thanks, Cathy. I reckon your experience will be missed – at least by some.
OTTAWA — Kanata public school trustee Cathy Curry says she’s so sick of the board’s dysfunction that she’s calling it quits.
But before she goes, Curry’s also calling on the Ministry of Education to introduce sweeping changes to the way public school trustees conduct business provincewide and to launch an investigation into how Ottawa-Carleton District School Board trustees govern themselves.
In a letter to the board’s senior staff — and circulated to trustees Friday afternoon, Curry quotes one of the board’s former governance coaches, saying, “If you can’t change people, sometimes you have to change people.”
