School board meeting of 5/27/2014: The wasting money on a charter study school board meeting.

The school Board produces great agendas which include all of the attachments that the school board members have. To get your own copy of the 59-page agenda, follow this link.

I have not watched this meeting yet myself and don't know if I will have the opportunity. If someone else would like to watch it, summarize it and provide time stamp notations, I will update and post your summary and give you credit.

Here is the Tennessean's report on the meeting:

 A third-party vendor has been tapped to tell Metro Nashville Public Schools how much charter schools cost the district, but the move isn't sitting well with everyone.
 Following one of its most animated discussions on charters to date, the Metro school board voted 6-2 Tuesday to hire Olympia, Wash.-based MGT of America to conduct a study on the financial impact of charter schools in Nashville.

The district will pay $43,000 for a study that should conclude this summer..... (link)
