Walsh: Ed foundation leaders are 'elitist snobs'

Tirade sparked by 'welcome' to new School Committee members


In response, the foundation posted the following notice on its Facebook page: “The Salem Education Foundation is a non-political organization with a clear vision and mission to help improve Salem Public Schools.”

The brief statement was followed by its vision and mission statements.

Asked for a comment, Mayor Kim Driscoll, the school board chairwoman, issued the following statement:

“The Salem Education Foundation is a strong partner to our public school district and they have played a positive and meaningful role in our schools. They represent parents, support teachers and help drive quality education for all of our students. We are fortunate to have this diverse and largely volunteer organization assisting our school improvement efforts.”
