How can appointed board not help superintendent?

So Tony Walker wants to know, "How can you work with 10 people that you are suing?"

My question would be, how can the appointed board fail to work with the elected superintendent of public instruction?

Walker claims that he and the other board members did nothing wrong when they sent a letter on official board letterhead asking that the calculating of 2011-12 school grades be taken from the DOE under Superintendent Glenda Ritz and given to a legislative agency. That is a political ploy.

Did the political appointees that make up the board even discuss this change with Ritz?

The board seems to be so interested in supporting the discredited former Superintendent Tony Bennett that they will do anything to obscure where the real problem lies. They need to look into the mirror.
