Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Tonight's Hollywood "Community Meeting to Discuss Curriculum for Elem. School "C"

Since I wrote about Ann Murray again
in an email last week that discussed
some matters and also linked to Bob
Norman
's excellent stories, in case
some folks hadn't seen his stories
originally, esp. the great one around
Labor Day about her hitting the road
for parts north of here for some
cold hard campaign cash, titled

A
nn Murray Gets the Royal Treatment
archives at http://blogs.browardpalmbeach.com/pulp/
I've received 8 more emails attacking
Murray and Gottlieb as no-nothing,
'reform sell-out' phonies.

Per the Herald's story of Monday
Put construction committee on hold,
Broward School Board member says
http://miamiherald.typepad.com/nakedpolitics/2009/10/put-construction-committee-on-hold-broward-school-board-member-says.html
one well-informed Hollywood activist
finally uttered the phrase that first
occurred to me this past spring,
after I wrote about the fact that more
than six months after being her
being elected, Murray's email address
was STILL not on the Broward School
Board's website, and my frustration
at not getting ANY sort of response
from School Board staff to this news:
Ann "Rip Van Winkle" Murray



The consensus from people who've
written me -hardly scientific- is
that the same effort by Broward
powers-that-be that forced the
school into the Lincoln Park
neighborhood in the first place
-and ruined their neighborhood
park
-is part of Jennifer Gottlieb's
long-term efforts to placate her
supporters, many of whose children,
like her's, will soon be too old
to continue going to their present
Montessori school in FTL.

According to these same emails,
the script is already being written
whereby Gottlieb comes to the
rescue and does what's necessary
to make sure that the public school
in Lincoln Park uses the Montessori
Method
, so they don't have to
pay
for a private Montessori,
like the one on Hollywood Blvd.,
which, from what I'm told by some
of you, charges about $900 a month.

So, going into this meeting tonight,
which so many of you have been
reminding me about, that's the
leading
theory as of now, so make
of it what
you will.

Since I'm not sure if I'll be there
tonight, if you go tonight, please
drop me a line tomorrow about
what your thoughts are about what
you saw and heard, as well as any

pieces of the puzzle that were
curiously missing from the overall
picture.


I suspect the meeting will be quite
an interesting spectacle tonight,
with lots of verbal thrusts and volleys,
given that usual allies will be on on
different sides of this issue,
depending
on geography,
personal friendships
and political
alliances, and the respective
ages
of their own kids.

The personal becomes the political.

And even now, Peter Deutsch and
Ben Gamla's attempt to overwhelm
a family neighborhood in Hallandale
Beach with a K-12 Broward public
school, and all the attendant traffic
from all points of the compass,
including a lot from Aventura,
Sunny Isles and NMB in M-D,
looms on the horizon as a fight
that'll be joined before the end
of the year...
