Rally for Caroline Lewis: TERRIFIC TURNOUT!!
We estimate that approximately 150 people showed this morning to rally for quality educational programs and Caroline Lewis, former Director of Education at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden in Miami. Signs were creative--and colorful: UNFAIR-Child, Honk for Caroline!, Greer Must Go!, New Board at Fairchild, Save the Fairchild Challenge!, Quality Must Mean Something!, etc. Let's see what the next step is. There is a Board meeting coming up at the Garden. We are trying to increase teacher membership so that we can present a stronger front. It seems to be all about dollars.
