Citizens for One Greater New Orleans informs us of an Orleans Parish School Board Candidate Public Forum:
Tuesday, September 23, 2008 from 6:30-8:00 pm at the Urban League of Greater New Orleans offices at 2322 Canal Street, New Orleans. Street parking is available. The doors will open at 6:00PM and you will have an opportunity at that time to meet your candidates.
And yes, I know some of the usual local education "reform" suspects are involved in this one...but it's a darned good chance to see if all of these folks running for school board positions know what they're getting into or if they are gonna have those deer-in-the-headlights faces.
