This session shares my conversation with School Committee Chairperson Dave Callaghan. This is a new episode of our continuing “Chalkboard Chat” series. We had our discussion in the Franklin TV & Radio studio after our respective participation in the Strawberry Stroll on Friday, June 7, 2024. 

We talk about 

  • The school budget & the override scheduled for June 11
  • Redistricting next steps proceeding no matter the override vote results
  • Harsh reality of cuts pending if the override vote fails
  • Reminder to vote on June 11 and make sure your friends & neighbors do so as well

The recording runs about 35 minutes, so let’s listen in.
