Specialty high school a no-go for PA, group says

It looks like we already decided to have schools within schools. Where are they?

It is the circle of life in Palo Alto. The discussion goes on for ever; then nothing is done and all is forgotten. The idea comes up again, to applause, "what a great idea!" The discussion goes on forever; then nothing happens and all is forgotten. The idea comes up again, to applause, "what a great idea!"

Palo Alto, where great minds think and think and think. Maybe a consultant would help.

Right, nothing ever gets done--no schools open, no schools close.

Only the district did close a third of its elementaries, Jordan, Terman and Cubberley. It then later reopened Jordan and Terman.

In between, it discussed a lot of stuff.

Nothing-ever-changes is a short-term view of the district, where, in fact, things do change.
