No other comments? No public outcry on the web about disabled children being bullied in Palo Alto Schools? I'm not surprised as all forms of bullying have become endemic in our business, culture, governments and public agencies... What our children learn at home and via our forms of entertainments; they model in our schools... No wonder, so many refer to this area as "Shallow Alto."

Thanks to the weekly for bring these attitudes and behaviors in to the life; now, what will will do? Will we start to evolve and change our thinking, our actions and our behaviors...

Time will tell....
