I attended the STPSB meeting last night. My first in several months. Many parents spoke during public comments about the awful math curriculum being used in St. Tammany parish. After the comments, board member Neal Hennegan requested opening the agenda to add a vote on holding a special meeting in order to discuss these concerns before the regular October meeting. The request required a vote on opening the agenda which needed a unanimous decision. All members voted in favor except board member Elizabeth Heintz. When questioned by parents as to why she voted against, her reason was that Trey Folse and Cheryl Arabie need time to prepare. What about the children and parents who are dealing with this???
