You Can’t Buy Fun Like This!

I just received an email from FETC alerting me to the “blockbuster” closing keynote at their upcoming conference.

FETC 2009 conference highlights include:

FETC 2009’s Blockbuster Closing Session!
Be part of an FETC exclusive Q & A session with Chancellor of Public Schools for the Florida Department of Education, Dr. Frances Haithcock. During this “Town Hall Meeting” format, Dr. Haithcock will respond to questions submitted in advance from FETC attendees. Questions are being accepted now and attendees are encouraged to submit their question to info@fetc.org with the subject line “closing session.”

Although this sounds like Jaleel White performing in the Cirque du Soleil production of Uncle Vanya, I do have a few questions.

1) Why is it so unique when a public education official speaks with the public?

2) Why do questions need to be submitted in advance? Is to ensure that nothing interesting or relevant gets asked of the public official? Or, does this speak to the Chancellor’s ability to answer tough questions?

When did educators become peasants and school officials Czars?

3) Why would anyone from outside of Florida care what is discussed during this “blockbuster” event?
