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.

Foreclosure Risk is Growing, With No Relief in Sight

Homeowners and small landlords are under mounting pressure, as lost income related to COVID-19 leaves them with month after month of unpaid debt and limited ability to catch up. The loss of wealth could impact the next generation and beyond, especially in communities of color, warns LISC’s Denise Scott. “Just as COVID-19 is having a disproportionate impact on the health of Black and Brown families, so too is it exacerbating our racial wealth gap, which already saps so much from our national potential.”

Unlocking Corporate Treasuries for Racial Equity: A Podcast with LISC's George Ashton

George Ashton III, who oversees LISC's Strategic Investments department, joined a recent episode of the podcast Money + Meaning to discuss LISC's Black Economic Development Fund. The conversation delved into the growth of CDFIs and their role in economic development and how more corporations can direct their capital towards systems change that promotes racial equity.

How CDFIs and the UN Can Align the Measure of their Common Goals

By adopting a set of universal benchmarks established by the United Nations—the UN Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs—Community Development Financial Institutions can streamline the way they measure and demonstrate the investments they've been making for decades to help create equity and wellbeing for people and places in the United States. A blog by LISC's Anna Smukowski and the OFN's Andrea Longton explains how and why.
