Approve agreement with Baruti K. Kafele to conduct a three-day training on July 22, 23 and 24, 2015 for the staff of Vine Middle School and staff of other schools who desire to attend at a cost of $15,000.00Now, here's the catch: It's on the consent agenda, which is Latin for "rubber stamp."
Now, I'm sure Mr. Kafele is a good dude and means well. He's got a fancy website RIGHT SMACK HERE and he likes to refer to himself as "Principal" Kafele. (I like that. I'm gonna start calling myself "Reporter" Mike.)
Anyhoo, according to the contract agreement that the board will be asked to approve - find that bad boy RIGHT SMACK HERE - Kefele "will provide educations with specific strategies within the 'Closing the Attitude Gap Program and Framework' for closing the attitude gap toward the ultimate elimination of underachievement in their classrooms and schools."
He'll also be talking about "changing the intentionality of excellence."
Whatever that means.
And all for $5,000 a day!
Like I said: Money well spent.
