Yesterday’s Courier-Journal reports on the continuing confrontation concerning the recent closed door evaluation of Jefferson County Schools superintendent Shelly Berman.
The school board says it did nothing wrong and an existing Kentucky Attorney General opinion does not apply. However, the newspaper isn’t buying it and says it will appeal to the Attorney General’s office.
According to the Courier-Journal, other school districts have also ignored an October 2008 Attorney General ruling that the process of superintendent evaluation must be open to the public.
Thus, the Jefferson County folks may have company in the transparency “dunce cap” corner, unless the Attorney General backs down from its previous ruling in favor of the public’s right to know.
