Did anyone else find this comment odd? New TCAPS Superintendent VanWogoner told the Traverse City Ticker that he didn’t really follow the Ann Cardon controversy as it unfolded.
Is that a good answer?
Shouldn’t the incoming superintendent be up to date on a huge controversy that engulfed his new school district for much of the year prior? The controversy remains ongoing, with outstanding lawsuits, unanswered questions and a lot to still talk about. Wouldn’t how the issue was handled and settled be relevant to his interest in a position and how he might manage the district if put in charge? Underlying all of it is the issue of the Homeschool Partnership and alleged student count irregularities. These issues still matter to the district to the tune of millions of dollars.
VanWogoner wants us to believe that he doesn’t want conflict, and he wants to go along to get along.
I don’t think VanWagoner gave the right or honest answer to the question. What do you think?
