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.

No-Spin Zone awaits Broward County Schools Supt. Robert Runcie at Hollywood Hills H.S. Thursday night at 6:30 pm

Broward County Schools Supt. Robert Runcie's so-called "Listening Tourfinally comes to southeast Broward on Tuesday night, his only appearance in the area, at Hollywood Hills High School at 6:30 p.m., 5400 Stirling Road, Hollywood.

As I see it, his mission Tuesday night, besides whatever actual listening he does, will be to try to explain to those in attendance just how he's going to demolish what I've long called here on the blog 'the Broward County Schools' dysfunction junction.'

That's an amorphous universe of light and shadows where the normal laws of logic and reason, not to mention, gravity and morality, that apply to the rest of us, are laughed at with seeming contempt. 
Their response to the public's queries and complaints in the past has always been some variation of, "well, we have our own rules, and you wouldn't understand them."

Which explains, in part, why expensive school buildings have been built that weren't actually needed, land has been purchased that didn't have an actual future purpose and... well, you get the idea.
To say nothing of the ethical scandals, some of which are still not fully known to the general public.

All of that dysfunction and incompetency combined explains why the School system has riled and enraged concerned taxpayers, parents & pols in this part of Broward for years. 

Given everything that's happened in the past year within the School system, and in this part of the county in particular, I feel pretty confident in saying that Tuesday night will be a No-Spin Zone for Runcie and any Schools administrators or elected officials who even try to mis-represent the truth (and the facts) that everyone attending already knows.

Attempts at historical revisionism should be met with boos and hoots from the audience.  

In fact, given everything that HAS happened in the past year, with lots of legitimate questions NEVER properly answered to taxpayer and parent's satisfaction, if everyone from SE Broward who should actually show-up for this event actually does, I expect that it will be quite a combative night.
And rightly so.

See ya there!

Above, me in June, pre-recent haircut, near acres and acres of orange groves off Scenic U.S. #17 in Frostproof, FL, while visiting hot/humid Central Florida, which I'm convinced is where heat/humidity goes in the Summer to get away from it all... The oppressive heat & humidity there is literally everywhere you go. :-(
