I am shocked that you are only publishing this on issue, when there were a lot more important discussions taken place at this board meeting, such as the 4 district goals (number one taking care of the social emotional needs) and also the big disparity of students of color placed in special education. There were very good speakers commenting on both issues, and here the reporter chose to talk about one that is not as important as the social emotional needs of our students. I am wonder if the reporter was influenced by the district to not speak about it. Sad
