Fresno Unified’s “convocation” is not a morale booster. It’s an irritant and a very expensive waste of time.
In your article Aug. 13 about the convocation, (teachers union president) Tish Rice said she had brought concerns about it to the Fresno Unified board and had gotten no response. Your reporter asked a Fresno Unified spokesperson how much convocation cost and she wouldn’t answer. Superintendent Michael Hanson routinely refuses to answer questions he doesn’t like.
The best morale booster? Seeing Hanson held responsible for his actions.
