Whether you are dealing with a school committee or the principal and vice-principal, outing a good old boy administration is a challenge in that they typically have strong professional connections in the communities they work in and deep pockets.

Send it to the school’s superintendent when you feel you have a powerful number of signatures, which will vary depending on the school size. Educate the public
