If you are a close reader of this blog, you are likely aware of the controversy involving the North Kingstown School Committee and the termination of its school custodians. But maybe you are not aware of just how acrimonious the relationships are between the members of the school committee members are themselves. The video clip below is a taste of how dysfunctional this committee has become. If you like, you can see the entire video at the school department website by following this link.
Watching this, one is struck by the absolute disrespect shown to the school committee member who is speaking, Melvoid Benson. Not only does the chair of the committee, Kimberly Page, interrupt her several times, she then allows John Boscardin to unload on Mrs. Benson, a senior citizen, before finally calling a recess. Is it any wonder the workers were treated so poorly when the committee members treat each other this way?
