All the action last night was at the Board of Education meeting (held in the library for chrissakes - didn't you anticipate lots of folks showing up?) The mayor and several Common Council members were there. Lots of angry parents were there. And what did the board do? Exactly what they were expected to do - not close any schools, while stripping the budget of such "non-essentials" as lunch monitors, language teachers, bus monitors, substitute teachers and, uh, books.
