Do Kevin Skelly and Charles Young deserve a raise for their 2013 performance?

Original post made by Observer, South of Midtown, on Nov 21, 2013

There are several threads right now that have comments on them indicating disapproval with the news that Kevin Skelly will be receiving a raise of 3% this year, totaling approximately $10,000. In the past year, Dr. Skelly did not inform the board that the federal civil rights investigators had found that Palo Alto violated the civil rights of a disabled student by allowing her to be bullied repeatedly. He did not inform the board or public that he had entered into a Resolution Agreement. He participated in the board's violation of the Brown Act by his own admission with the Board Policy Review Committee. He failed to ensure that Paly complied with Title IX following the Rape Culture expose in the student magazine -- he didn't even know what he was supposed to do.
