Workshops, Required and Not

SmileyCentral.comNYS now requires six hours of fiscal oversight training for school board members. This is the latest thing: mandating training for voluntary board members of all kinds. Paul thinks requiring anything of volunteers is just plain wrong. But how can I resist six hours at the Horseheads Holiday Inn, learning about revenue sources; disposition of funds; accounting practices; and fraud, waste, and abuse? I'm going at the last possible date, December 1.

Meanwhile, Irene, Carrie, and I are doing our own, optional workshop for candidates tonight at GIAC.
