I hope the Patch carefully watches the selection of the oversight committee for the new assessment monies. Considering 70% of kids in RCSD are Latino--that group should be given a proportionate number of members on the committee. Citywide it may be closer to 40%----hope the district doesn't try tokenism. We are all watching.
