Electing a New School Board

Original post made by Soccer Mom, Community Center, on May 28, 2007

After watching the last several school board meetings, its clear that Dana Tom, Many Lowell, and Camille Townsend have no business being on any board. Shame on us for electing them.

Good idea.

Any idea who? I have heard nothing about anyone standing? What happens if no brave soles stand forward. In these times, they have to be brave. Anyone willing?

The Board of Education already voted against introducing MI into PAUSD at this time. Stick to your recent decision and stop being strong-armed by anyone. It really does make the entire Board look pathetic.

I heard through the grapevine that there's some sort of change-the-board org? Anyone hear anything?

The BOE voted against MI for fall 2007, it did not address fall 2008 or other later dates.

It's revisiting the issue and voting on 2008 next Tuesday. Unless it delays again.

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
