America is a dream. It’s an ideal to which we aspire, a promise made to us, and a promise that we make.
This is my version and opinion of the June 2019 Town Council meeting. Please read this with the knowledge that “my side of the story” is presented more clearly and with more insight than the “other side,” which is limited to my assumptions of the positions of others. Because I am not presenting “the whole story,” I caution readers not to rely exclusively on these summaries to fully form their opinions. My hope is that you will find items of interest in here that will direct you to seek other sources of information about those topics.
There are many challenges to implementing the District’s start time policy. There are many people who have expressed they are unhappy that it is going forward. It is unlikely to help everybody. The School Committee can recognize that, and I believe have communicated that they do in fact recognize that, and still determine the Barrington School District is better off maintaining that policy. Their exclusive authority to make that decision is how our government is designed to work. And, that’s a good thing.
