Mullaney:one of the best discussions we've had on the school committee in a long time
encouraged by the level of dialogue to begin this new term
funds for kids of Worcester
balk at involvement of federal government in educational lives of the community
"I am not one...we all talk about the worry we have for future generations of Americans...fiduciary responsibility to future generations...$4.2 billion is not chicken feed that we're borrowing from a foreign country, probably...not at all convinced that the federal government should" be this involved in education
"this whole thing gives me great pause"
"that being said, I think I'm convinced by the mayor"
"would like to be a team player on this"
