Anyone know the real story about him walking out on his teammates last night?

To refer to the other Board members as Jim Rinck's "teammates" would imply that they let him on the team in the first place. For far too long, his has been the only voice of reason on the GRPS Board. "...frustrated and lost his passion" - Who could blame him? The Superintendent will now be given an appointed member to complete the rubber stamp board he now has completely under his thumb. It's a sad day for GRPS and the city in general - I for one will miss Jim Rinck and want to thank him for his many years of selfless devotion to public education.

As a retired GRPS employee who stays in contact with many who are still working in the district, the general consensus seems to be that Taylor is a "My way or the highway." type of leader. If he has a vision for GRPS and it works - great. However, if he is taking the district down a path that isn't in the communities best interests, then no voices of opposition on the Board of Ed would be a dangerous thing. Jim Rinck always provided that voice; the voice that said "...hold on - let's take a look at all sides of this issue." Some called him argumentative - I for one welcomed the argument if it meant that the right thing was ultimately done. Once again, I think he will be missed and I wish him the best in his future endeavors.

I'd have probably given up and taken my jug of milk if I were him. It's a shame, he did seem to be a straight shooter.

The strangest part of this story:

".....and with that, Jim Rinck left the building, taking his nameplate and his gallon of milk."

What? He brought a gallon of milk to the board meeting? :dontknow:
