Many of us in the English Department at Montgomery feel that this discussion needs to start right now. The last day of voting is tomorrow, and we believe it is imperative that we have a vigorous dialogue among as many members as possible. The low turnout at the recent town hall meeting might suggest that not all of our members have taken the opportunity to participate in a public forum regarding this momentous decision. To paraphrase one speaker at that meeting, this is a critical moment in our school district's trajectory. Decisions made now may haunt both students and educators in the future, and none of them should be entered into without dialogue and communication among members. In that spirit, would all of you receiving this link please forward it as widely as possible to SRTA members. Use Facebook or personal email addresses to spread the word about this forum. Although it was started by people raising objections to the calendar, we invite diverse points of view and encourage as many responses as possible. Some of us may have valuable information and wisdom that we need to share with others.
