Just read the Weekly's reportingon The Ohlone Way and Susan Charles' education history.
First - it explains a lot about why Charles has been so compliant with the District Staff and willing to put Ohlone on the block for MI:
1 - she's got political aspirations (training actively for District Administrative positions) - and being a 'doer' a founder, a problem solver, will be a great feather in her cap. And she wont even have to stick around to make it work! All she has to do is be there for the grand opening ceremonies!
2 - she's probably leaving Ohlone shortly (training actively for administrative positions) which means she comes out smelling like a rose by being a great 'team player' for the administration, and leaves the ridiculous mess of MI the Ohlone Way and demanding Nine, to some other poor incoming principal to battle out.
MI the Ohlone way - Susan Charles doesn't see the big problem. Seems like cultural insensitivity to me to fail to recognize the learning style that is culturally expected by many in this interest group. But all the better. Charles and Mah can duke it out for a year or two until Charles bolts. May they be very happy together.
