DC Board of Education: Laura McGiffert Slover

Laura McGiffert Slover is my member of the Board of Eduction. According to the voter guide sent by the Board of Elections, she was appointed by Mayor Fenty. She has no opposition. Pity.

Her website is filled with happy talk with not sign of the great damage that is now being inflicted upon a vulnerable school system. What does she think of the firing of Art Seibens? Does she support the firing of Bevadine Z. Terrell? Charles Harden?

Is it OK to fire experienced teachers and replace them with a series of substitute teachers? Is it OK to have 45 students per class? Is it OK for Shepard Elementary to have had 5 principals in six months?

What are the minimum standards for charter schools? Is a 60% student attrition rate acceptable?

What is Slover doing to monitor the current situation? I wish I had a choice on the ballot.
