Because we all know how PAUSD Board meetings are "flooded" by outside folks for "political reasons". This is Dauber and Collin's way of removing the greater participation of PAUSD teachers, PAUSD students, an PAUSD parents and Palo Alto community city residents in voicing anything concerns and dissent to their actions.

Nothing new. It's stupefying to see how Dauber and Collins doesn't want greater participation of vested stakeholders (including students who can not drive or attend long meetings in person). Very clever way of silencing voices.

This is WHY Collins hired Austin! To silence the community, so they can accomplish their personal and political education agenda. It’s the same strategy that was used to divert public tax dollars to Catholic schools. Are you seeing the trend yet voters?

It's been years since I've been to a school board meeting. I think we had to fill out a card to be called on to speak. Maybe it was just your name & the topic. Not sure how it works currently.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
