The publicly elected Fresno Unified School Board seems to have forgotten that its first duty is to protect the public’s interest in education. It seems to believe that due process for Michael Hanson is more important than its due diligence for the taxpaying public as it considers expediting his evaluation for questionable reasons.
Doesn’t the public have the right to due process? Isn’t due process better served by waiting for the results of the ongoing federal investigation than the possibility of financially binding the school district even further to the superintendent, which happens during the evaluation process?
The public should be outraged if the school board fails to look out for them, first and foremost, and agrees to expedite this evaluation, and they should let their FUSD board member know it.
