Image by lemonad via FlickrThe local blog Had Enough Indy? reports that Dr. Don Stinson of Decatur Township is in the process of changing jobs. I'm pretty familiar with his attitude toward the special ed. students in the townships. We're back at square one when it comes to political jockeying and local interests because the likelihood is that a school board may want to find someone who will follow their own vision. Vision these days seems to be limited to cutting corners.
Special education in the townships is already highly political and contentious. With the interlocal storm brewing, it's a whole new Governing Board on the horizon for families in Perry, Beech Grove, Decatur and Franklin Townships. This is especially true if the school boards wash their hands of the interlocal and allow it to self-govern.
