Looked like the word "boobies" will be used in a Supreme Court case over two girls, who in 2010 were then 12 and 13, who were trying to raise awareness for breast cancer. They violated their school's ban on bracelets and wore pink bracelets that said, "I heart Boobies!" A lower court said the district didn't prove the bracelets had disrupted learning. The district won't back down and has hinted it will take it all the way to the high court. (What's interesting is that the district sees this as interfering with their right to make policies about discipline versus the girls' belief in free speech.)
A new website about Native Americans called - what else - Native American News. Has news from around the country on a variety of topics including public education.
The Times got off a nice little shot of support for their favored School Board candidate in District IV. They had yet (another) editorial about PTAs sharing fundraising dollars. I thought it odd given they had written about this subject earlier in the year.
This one covered no new ground but did manage to sneak in a quote from Suzanne Dale Estey (she seems to think parents will be "motivated" to share their money and obviously hasn't read the comments here). But did they quote any current Board member? No. Did they quote Sue Peters? No. Did they ask Sue Peters? No. Has Dale Estey been on anyone's radar as an education leader you could quote before this race? No. That's the Times.
There are no Director Community meetings tomorrow.
What's on your mind?
