You are right: the process of funding schools is a mess. I suspect it always has been. And I totally agree with your mother, we do need to pay attention to kids with alternative learning needs. But if what Mayor Wilson say is true--if no one saw this request coming--then shame on the school board. You have to tell a story early and often in order to give it gravity and make it stick. There is no "one and done" in the business of public persuasion.
Will Tinker ever get another chance? I guess so!
