Lee County Board Member, Mary Fischer, Wants to Change Her Vote at 8:30 AM Tuesday Morning

Clip from News-Press.com:
Opt-out may be a thing of the past.

Lee County School Board member Mary Fischer said Friday afternoon that she changed her mind about the benefits of opting out, calling for the board to rescind the motion at a special school board meeting.

Fischer, who served as the tiebreaker at Wednesday's 3-2 vote, called for the meeting to discuss repealing the sweeping decision. The meeting will be held at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday at the Lee County Education Center.

The school board often needs four votes, known as a "super majority," to rescind a decision. But district spokeswoman Amity Chandler said Tuesday's motion can be passed with the regular three votes, per Robert's Rules of Order. . . .
Tell the Lee County School Board to stay strong.  Send Mary Fischer an email to let her know what you think about her wanting to renege on her vote to opt out of state tests:
