By Buddy Nevins, BrowardBeat.com, Special to EyesOnNews.com, Nov 21, 2014 – The Broward School Board showed Superintendent Robert Runcie on Tuesday who is the boss.

A majority of Board members ordered Runcie to rewrite his plans for the bond oversight committee.

Runcie was advised by some to cut the number of members on the committee from 19 which he suggested.

(I believe Runcie recommended an overly-large bond oversight committee to prevent it from accomplishing anything meaningful. He doesn’t want to risk having the committee criticizing him and his staff.)

Echoing what Browardbeat.com has been writing for months, member Nora Rupert said that trying to get 19 members to agree upon anything was like herding cats.
