Always the last one picked

I think I’m the only person that the Patrick Administration has not picked to be on an education advisory committee.

I was fine when I was overlooked for the pre-K – 12 and Higher Education transition teams, consisting of 11 and 12 members respectively.

Then, they went ahead without me for the K – 12 and Higher Education Task Forces, consisting of 47 total members.

Next, I was snubbed for the Readiness Project Leadership Council, made up of 21 members.

And now the final straw, no room for me among the 150+ members of the Readiness Project subcommittees.

I’m kidding here obviously, but my broader point is this — how many committee meetings and members do you need to determine your education policy and priorities?
