I just caught up with Scott Himelstein, director of the Center for Education Policy and Law at the University of San Diego, about the meeting he convened yesterday among education and business leaders on how to improve the school system.
He said no decisions or plans had come out of the meeting, during which people who in August urged the school board to find a way to keep Superintendent Terry Grier discussed finances, student performance and governance of San Diego Unified.
“I would characterize it as a very, very healthy discussion about the district,” Himelstein said. “What it did say to me is there are a group of folks from diverse entities, backgrounds who are interested in talking about this more.”
