Consideration of third high school paused

Original post made on Sep 12, 2007

Members of Palo Alto's new High School Task Force don't feel qualified to look at whether the district should re-open a third high school == the core reason the group was formed.
Instead, group members feel they are more qualified to look at school curriculum.

Sounds like a typical PAUSD decision.


Interesting though that they have more money than expected and concerned how to spend it!!

Here's a radical thought: assemble a task force that is actually qualified to look at the issue of reopening the third high school, rather than changing the focus of the group. Or maybe as well as having the curriculum guidance group.

There are a bunch of children not being served in elementary school as well -- the ones who are quiet, well behaved and birght, but not completely self-instructing. Maybe we could include them for consideration.

If there's all this money, why do we need a bond?
