Robinson wrote that local school boards require a public comment opportunity for parents and other members of the community to voice their opinions about issues related to school, but there has been a major shift recently.

"This provision gives residents of a school district the chance to vent their spleens about exorbitant taxes or demand subjects be taught properly the way they were during the most frigid period of the Cold War. In the past, more often than not, nobody showed up," Robinson said. "Not these days. As social media outlets, national news broadcasts and our local newspapers tell us, school boards are now the new battleground in the fight for America’s future."

Robinson wrote that some members of the community interpret the public comment portion of school board meetings to show "why they have the collective intelligence of a village idiot."

"Some members of my community appear to interpret this part of board meetings as the occasion to tell board members why they have the collective intelligence of a village idiot and how the school district ought to be addressing real problems," the school board member wrote.

That remark isn’t going to go over well, here in York.

Tar, feathers and rail would be the appropriate way to remove him from the schoolboard.

I think the majority of board members should either have a child or grandchild who attends the school.

Thanks; I don’t read the 2 local rags, The York Dispatch and York Daily Record. I should, but I don’t.

He claims he was “elected by people who want him to REPRESENT them.”

Like when you want a lawyer to represent you and I believe that lawyer WORKS for you AND IS PAID BY YOU.

Talk about twisted thinking.

“Robinson wrote that some members of the community interpret the public comment portion of school board meetings to show “why they have the collective intelligence of a village idiot.”

This arrogance amongst the over paid school “administrators” needs to be squashed. How dare they impose their warped world view on our kids… but they do every day and have for the past 60 years. It was certainly true when I went to school…

I don’t remember the 50s & early 60s, when I went to grade school, Jr HS and HS, if they did or not.

The parents need to work 24/7 to get him fired.

If they succeed they have proved him wrong.

If they fail they have proved him right.

The school board problem can be easily fixed if most of the complainers would get off their butts and vote in the school board elections. They are all local and mostly ignored.

I read this op-ed. it’s and interesting mix of on the one hand technically accurate comments and dripping condescension towards people who disagree with him.

School boards may have to make unpopular choices due to fiscal and operational realities. That is not the case here. Alternative policies exist and and they have been implemented elsewhere and not increased risk to children and staff. This individual is dismissing proposals and tuning out alternatives due to a contempt for his opponent and a arrogant belief they can’t be wrong..
