The issue of school governance shouldn’t be cast in rigid terms. It requires a nuanced approach. That’s what Charlotte Golar Richie, a supporter of the appointed school committee, displayed by expressing a willingness to look at the proposed hybrid model, in which some members would be elected (“Smorgasbord of a race,” Metro, July 29).
Golar Richie said that, as mayor, she’d keep an open mind when it comes to school governance. I think that’s a good thing. She and I remember the divisiveness of some elected committees in the past.
