East Palo Alto desperately needs a public high school. Right now, students are distributed among neighboring school districts. Often, they cannot participate in after-school activities because they may not have transport back to EPA later, after the school buses leave. Their friends at school live in another district. Instead they return home to a community with very little organized activities for them to do. Dr Chan would do well to consider helping develop local, public education.

What I don't understand is why anyone would want to build a school on top of a hazardous waste dump. No matter how much remediation you do, people will always have questions about their children's heath in the back of their minds. Every child that develops any symptoms will blame it on the school. The lawsuits will be endless.

And then 30 years from now, when the students are adults and develop some disease someone will blame it on the years that they spent on top of a former hazardous waste site.

Why doesn't Priscilla Chan buy up some more houses on the block where she and Mark Zuckerberg live and build the school there?
