I am a graduate of Greenfield High School and so I took special notice of the fact that police were called to a school board meeting. I haven't lived in Greenfield for over 30 years but it's always been a rather colorful community.
Apparently the problem was that the number of teachers who wanted to attend a meeting in which the board would consider work rules exceeded the capacity of the room. The board felt it could not change the location because of requirements of the open meetings law which, of course, requires notice of a meeting's location. In response, the teachers started to chant and shout but order was ultimately restored.
This prompts me to ask a question that I have asked before: What's with public chanting?Do we really think that, if we repeat the same silly doggerel over and over again we will finally persuade someone? Or is this just the adult (and political) equivalent of a child's temper tantrum?
