History repeating itself?

The on-going craziness of the Oswego School District Board brings back some bad memories of the district’s travails during the late 1980s and early 1990s when the board, in their infinite wisdom, bought out the contract of one superintendent, attempted to hire one of their own members to the position (but retreated under threat of being sued by the Kendall County State’s Attorney), and wasted years with a clearly unprepared superintendent who was also given the (justified this time) boot.

I keep thinking to myself, “I’ve seen this movie before, and it doesn’t end well.” But thanks, school district voters, for electing a bunch that seem to enjoy creating controversy more than creating good educational opportunities for students.

True more now than ever: Those of us who know our history really are condemned to watching others repeat it.
