@Never been more disgusted,Back in July you wrote:
“…Or maybe I will continue to teach my students that their democratic duty is to criticize their elected and paid leaders to ensure that they are representing us. My union president may be silent right now, but I will not be.”I wished you, then, that you voice will be heard. I decided, then, to try to follow up with you.
I want to think that you also teach the virtues of free speech, First Amendment etc.
On January 31st, the weekly published a great editorial naming the January 28th – Nadir. (link #5). While I totally agree it was a low point, I suspect that lower points occur out of the camera’s watch.

Town Square Moderator,
There is a separate thread which Village Fool keeps resuscitating which I believe is a method to ignite controversy surrounding similar issues. It’s among your top posts of the day. If people click, it just gets more views, usually few people have commented since the original thread was started.
I have appreciated your delivering news on the topics regardless of controversy; however, when posters use a thread to ignite passions towards one view or another, that seems unnecessary. Astroturf movements on Town Square should at least have real people behind them.
The thread reporting on PAUSD Board’s Secret meeting was locked, completely. No more comments.
So, my act of trying to address a teacher after the mike was cut on brave Angela, who tried to share her experience of being bullied, was raising controversy. Shame on me.
And here’s to:
“…the old pesky First Amendment…” – Evaluate this!, (link #6)
