Remember how I said I wouldn't talk about the photo debacle anymore?
Turns out I'm a liar. Liar, liar, pants on fire.
I just figured you all would like to know it's in the process of being resolved.
After days of calling the sheriff's office, school board members, and staff at the Super Intendant's office, the Assistant Super Intendant of Elementary Schools (damn, that's a mouthful) reluctantly called me.
And I'm quite certain he was convinced he was going to talk to some bumbling half-wit who was mad that she didn't a picture.
I hate when people are presumptuous.
So he said he was returning my call and I explained why I called. He defended the right to auction the pictures and I said, yes, I understand the concept, it's the execution that I have issue with. Then it clicked for him.
I love when I can hear the clicking in the brain, especially on the phone.
So it began with him agreeing with me... which worked into him having a meeting with the principals... which I suggested actually become a policy. A policy of proper conduct and responsibility with photography. And he agreed.
Yes, it may not completed this week or this month. But something will be in place by the time school begins in August.
Amazing that action is happening without the threat of a lawsuit or bad publicity. And we really, really did not want to stoop to that level. I really do believe the intentions were good and I really do want to work with the school and school district to resolve this issue and anymore that may arise.
Now. My new project to work against social injustice?
Lego Storm Troopers.
Why are they all black without any faces?
