PushJunction: Wichita Falls ISD filibusters CSCOPE meeting.


Cahnman's Musings hasn't discussed CSCOPE for awhile, but this story out of Wichita Falls merits comment:
The 200 community members who attended Tuesday’s Wichita Falls ISD noon work session to hear board members discuss CSCOPE sat through a meticulously long presentation that lasted long past the lunch hour.

....

By 2 p.m. most community members were still sitting patiently through Assistant Superintendent Tim Powers’ two-hour presentation of 111 detailed slides — most unreadable to audience members — giving intricate detail about CSCOPE’s structure.

....

Such presentations are typically capped at 30-45 minutes.

Obviously, citizen activism has made an impact and the CSCOPE people are scared.  It seems their strategy is to string this out until we get bored and moved on.  This is the moment where persistence is key.
