Word of the Day: Seminal

Today's word of the day is brought to you by Dr. Weast.

For those of you wondering what Dr. Weast meant when he referred to the actions of the Board of Education's Policy Committee as "seminal," you are not alone.

From the Random House Webster's College Dictionary (1999):
. . .

2. highly original and influencing the development of future events

Dr. Weast may want to consult a dictionary the next time he makes an impromtu appearance at a Board of Education Fiscal Management Committee Meeting.

Dr. Weast and Chris Barclay, the chair of the Committee, may also need to consult the description of the committee's charge as adopted by a prior Board of Education Resolution. If the goal of the committee is to review how the school system used public money in the past, and how external reviews evaluated their actions, creativity is clearly not in order.
