|Body Language at Lindbergh|
This is a followup to our reporting on DESE's attempt to use the Delphi technique at the Common Core meeting at Lindbergh School District. We have two videos which show the refusal of the crowd to be divided into groups and asking questions to the officials.
Officials explain the process and the people refuse to cooperate/collaborate in the process
More citizen comments on the standards and the process
Unfortunately the storage on my phone reached its capacity and I couldn't capture the rest of the entire meeting but you can see and hear the anger and concern by the taxpayers. They are well educated and didn't appreciate their questions not being answered or their concerns not seriously considered.

Back of the room
No smiling faces in the room.
You can see from the photos breaking up into groups to gather questions would have been impossible.
