Time To Move On From MI Or Face A Backlash??
Original post made by JJ, Old Palo Alto, on Oct 11, 2007
With that in mind, I ask a simple question:
Given that such continued intense focus put forth by a relatively few core individuals will consume a significant amount of time - both of the Board and school administration - at the expense of other issues, is that really what the "people" as a whole want (and not just the hardcore MI opponents)?
Intuitively, one would have to say no - because those with middle or high school aged children likely don't (they have their own issues they'd like to see addressed) and - given the intense debate - one might reasonably expect those with elementary school children to be at least split down the middle.
Thus, I would expect that continued intense flogging of MI by the "usual suspects" will ultimately result in a public backlash against them. It seems to me that many people have already turned a deaf ear to them, being tired of this issue and wanting to move on to other (quite frankly, more important) things, myself included.
