As I was, literally, sitting at my computer preparing this month’s column I received the following e-mail:

I really liked your article in SBO entitled “Being Good is no Longer Good Enough.” Unfortunately, that is definitely the case. I would go a slightly different direction with your pegging uninformed administrators and school boards as being the heavy in school cuts. Quite often, the administrator and school board have their hands tied by state level cuts and requirements. One thing you do mention is the political world we must engage in. This is true, but I wonder if that political world is at our state house and governor’s office more than it is at the local school district’s central office. Please consider an article attempting to persuade readers to become active in their state’s political environment, especially where educational funding is concerned.
