News Story  October 19, 2012
"...Moreover, his reflexive support for IDEA Public Schools and its takeover of Allan Elementary, his dismissal of critics, and his pretense that the administration's only real problem has been poor communication, have alienated many in the community. Mathias is politically green, and may have a difficult learning curve – not least in distinguishing true educational allies from would-be "reform" advocates – but his energy, combined with a willingness to listen, should be a major board asset after the toxic environment of the campaign.
