Final Thoughts: Part 2

Final Thoughts: Part 2

In the last post, my rambling about love for Mama J’s pound cake, RVA-Richmond, and change adverseness was long enough to fulfill my own patience for a newsletter update. Here is part 2 and the conclusion of my “Final Thoughts.”

Peace and grace be with you.

The Compact

Mayor Stoney’s proposed Education Compact could be the central vehicle through which we get a RPS facilities plan adopted and funded. The Compact’s framework provides an opportunity for Richmond to “get our house in order” by internally-aligning the Mayor’s administration, the School Board, and City Council to enact a system of transparency, cooperation, and efficiency.

Worst case scenario, this Compact becomes yet another effort mired in political strife and stagnation that continues our broken school system.  

Richmond Forward is not going to let that happen and you'll want to read why.
