The West Lafayette Community School Corporation thinks there is something wrong with Dr. Sarah Mustillo.
I wonder what it could be?
Is it her six years at Duke?
Could it be her work on a Roman Catholic School Board in North Carolina?
Her research on parenting, family structure and the mental health of children and adolescents?
Her work on childhood obesity and depression?
The Mustillo’s two children; are they the problem?
Once she would have been an ideal candidate for the West Lafayette School Board. No longer.
It can’t be personal appearance or interview skills. She never even made the interview list for the two current school board openings. Just a perfunctory “ding” letter. Who made that decision?
Maybe it’s because she lives in our neighborhood. Or perhaps some random phobia about sociologists?
The school corporation is taking itself deeper into its cul de sac.
It’s a pity.
