School Board says no to televised meetings.

The Tacoma School Board has broken ranks with the progressive movement to televise board meetings. They claim that if they televised the meetings then some gadflys might get up use the TV for their own purposes. So what? It's the occasional polically incorrect dustup that makes these programs worth watching in the first place. There's also a claim that the program would be cost prohibitive. Better check with channel 12, the city already owns all the equipment.

The real reason TV cameras aren't being allowed is that they would upset the sort of cloistered decision making which has been "serving" Tacomas for so long.
