Profound Insult to PAUSD Community
Original post made by Parent, Palo Alto High School, on Feb 16, 2007
A CHAMPION FOR ALL: SELECTING
A NEW SUPERINTENDENT FOR PAUSD.
A PARENT-INITIATED TOWN MEETING for
students, parents, teachers, & community members
to share ideas on improving the experience of students
of color in PAUSD. (School Board members
and the Sup't Search Firm will attend.)
Goal: provide an opportunity to have an impact
on the selection of the new Superintendent, & to
help shape PAUSD's short- & long-term priorities.
This information was sent to all parents in the PAUSD today. Why would the goal be to "improve the experience of students of color in PAUSD"? Why not all students regardless of their color? I find this offensive and a profound insult to all members of the PAUSD community. I think that students of color would find it offensive if there was a meeting with the School Board and Sup't search firm where the goal was to "share ideas on improving the experience of white students in PAUSD". Let's stop this nonsense and start working as a community where the good of all members of the PAUSD community is the goal.
