Time to Discard Tinsley
Original post made by Resident, Another Palo Alto neighborhood, on Jan 26, 2007
The time has come for all parents with kids in Palo Alto schools to demand that the welfare of Palo Alto students come first. Tinsley was a compromise by our school district many years ago whereby kids from East Palo Alto would be allowed to attend our schools based on the concept that discrimination was running wild in all of the surrounding communities and the only way we could remedy this situation was to offer seats in our classrooms to kids from East Palo Alto. Our schools are badly overcrowded and this poorly designed compromise needs to go. Let's begin to put the education of Palo Alto kids first. Tinsley is a relic from the past and needs to go now!!!
