NHPS Board of Education Goes Meta? More Like Illogical!

NHPS Board of Education Goes Meta – More Like Illogical

“The Board of Education is looking to create a committee to discuss ... the Board of Education.

The New Haven Independent reports "At the board’s Tuesday night public meeting, members discussed a plan to create a new Governance Committee that would “guide and prioritize the focus of the NHPS board,” according to a handout. 

“Board Chair Carlos Torre said that he believes this could become one of the board’s “more important committees.” The current suggestion is to have three people on the committee, all members of the regular Board of Ed; Torre said that the committee could have more depending on interest. All meetings would be public.”

If anyone reading this feels confused – that’s O’K; it is confusing; in fact, what type of thinking went into this decision? One could understand if the Governance Committee is made up of 3-5 education and economics experts who are independent of the BOE, and who are willing to volunteer their time and expertise. If they are going to select 3 existing BOE members, why wouldn’t those same members act as rudders for the existing Board?!!!  Maybe the whole idea is to seem to be doing something differently; if that is the case, why not do something that makes sense and will actually be a constructive move that will bring about positive results. A tangled web does not inspire confidence.

What Happens When Workforce Development Meets Industrial District Revitalization

A new white paper from LISC’s Research and Evaluation team shows how revitalizing industrial districts can have an extraordinary impact in creating good jobs, activating neighborhoods and sparking local economies. Case in point: New York’s Brooklyn Navy Yard, an inspiring model for disinvested districts across the country.

“I Believe in the Power of Storytelling.” A Q&A with LISC’s Tope Folarin, Whose Novel Debuts this Week

“She told me I could serve her in heaven.” From that powerful opening line in A Particular Kind of Black Man, award-winning author Tope Folarin leads readers through an exploration of identity as seen through the eyes of a first-generation Nigerian-American. Folarin, whose “day job” is as LISC’s vice president of content and storytelling, says the story is relevant not just because of its connection to immigration and race, but because it looks at the way people struggle to build their own personal narratives…to live into their own stories. On the eve of his book tour, he talked about how his work as a novelist intersects with his work at LISC.
