It is the circle of life in Palo Alto. The discussion goes on for ever; then nothing is done and all is forgotten. The idea comes up again, to applause, "what a great idea!" The discussion goes on forever; then nothing happens and all is forgotten. The idea comes up again, to applause, "what a great idea!"

Palo Alto, where great minds think and think and think. Maybe a consultant would help.

Right, nothing ever gets done--no schools open, no schools close.

Only the district did close a third of its elementaries, Jordan, Terman and Cubberley. It then later reopened Jordan and Terman.

In between, it discussed a lot of stuff.

Nothing-ever-changes is a short-term view of the district, where, in fact, things do change.
