    Prior to any vote on the appointment of the next superintendent, the public deserves to see the resumes and qualifications of all the finalist candidates, not just the Board Presidents choice. They could be scrubbed and de-identified. I think it’s important that the public understand how the President came to his recommendation, given how much public input was solicited in the process.
