I find nothing silly about this. They are elected because the people believe that they will do what is right and what the majority believes to be the right thing to do and what is best for the children of our community. Anyone can get off course occassionally. What would be the problem with a little clarity and guidance. This could also benefit the public with educating them on how these meetings work.

There's your case Mr. Editor -- there is nothing about their plans to make two failing school districts into one bigger failing district -- an issue that meets the requirements of executive session. Make the violation front page news and beat on the BSD board, until the people and the state take action to bring them under control.

Then they went right into a shady ex session. Funny. Not really.
