Thursday, July 17, 2008 | Too bad the notion of a parcel tax for financially pressed local public schools has died prematurely, with the only result being recriminations flying between new Superintendent Terry Grier, San Diego Education Agency President Camille Zombro and members of the Board of Education. And what was yet-to-be-elected Richard Barrera doing in the mix? He went to San Francisco to explore how the parcel tax there is structured along with some other Board members and the superintendent? Aren’t there rules prohibiting this? Luis Acle is a disaster, but he is the Board member of record, not Board candidate Barrera. Maybe it’s one of those too-common instances where they say, “It’s all about the kids,” and gloss over procedural niceties. It sounds to me like it’s all about things falling apart.
