In the middle of the presentation, a local political candidate stopped by to address the attendees. He was running, ironically, for school board and was allowed a brief few minutes while I took a break, to deliver his platform and sell his stand. He was a nice enough guy, but could have probably benefited from being present for the first half of the conversation. He made several promises as to how he intended to improve the local public schools, bring up test grades, increase spending on the local district etc. One significant promise he made was to improve the curriculum so that kids can be better “trained to enter the work force”. I’m proud to say that he was treated respectfully and politely, as every human being should be treated. It was however, really sort of funny when he left.
