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.

Broward School Board members will try to defend their record next Tuesday at DEM mtg. in Hollywood. Board v. Reality? Reality wins in a knockout!

Published in Miami Herald on 2/6/2011

The Hollywood Democratic Club will be hosting some Broward School Board members next Tuesday the 22nd at the Hollywood Cultural Center at 1301 S. Ocean Drive at 7 p.m. Their stated agenda is to "speak on the status of the Broward School Board."

Status?
Lower-than-low, bluer-than-blue?

Based on what I can tell from conversations I have had with well-informed people throughout Broward, folks who know who all the players are, plus, the occasional indignant email I receive from blog readers complaining about the Miami Herald and the South Florida Sun-Sentinel STILL ignoring far too many prospective School Board stories, or ignoring ones broken by others with no follow-up by them, like the rather famous Jennifer Gottlieb story by The NewTimes' Bob Norman I've referred to here previously,
http://www.browardpalmbeach.com/search/index?keywords=Jennifer+Gottlieb&x=0&y=0 I'd have to say the community's clear answer regarding status is "being driven into the ground."


Or, after last year's Keystone Kops antics and blame-shifting during the
Marko Chronicles, if you prefer, "laughing-stock."


Oh the hijinks and rolled eyes that will ensue at the Q&A!

I wonder which of our 'favorites' will be in attendance?
