To the editor: I am a Galena Elementary School parent and PTA member. I attended the March board of education meeting. While I walked away with a mostly positive experience, some things concerned me.
I suggest to Mr. Jeff Reed that bullying attendees of BOE meetings like he did when an attendee was pointed at and reprimanded during the meeting as well as chastising parents for gathering and communicating their unhappiness with a BOE decision is not a great way to earn trust and encourage parents to attend meetings. I understand that there was a personal conflict with the individual mentioned above but an open session BOE meeting is not the time to address it.
