LJSD is like a family. These days, the Spring of '10, it's more than just a bit dysfunctional. My mom used to say, "Son, don't air the family's dirty laundry." Most families heed that advice.
But LJSD is not a family: It's a school district. As a former systems engineer, I believe that the more data on the table, the easier it is for everyone to see what's going on and what needs to be done. You can't solve a problem until you have a clear picture of what the problem is.
Real-life problems are like connect-the-dot puzzles. In the case of LJ, many people have a piece of the puzzle: a dot, or two, or three. The more dots on the page... the easier it is to solve the puzzle.
So what's the problem? I'm not sure... let's get some dots on the table!
