Does anyone know what happened regarding the Special Ed caucus at RHS that no officials showed up at? (Aurora posted about it on an earlier thread.)

I have e-mailed the Mayor's office and LEV (they are coordinating the caucuses). They apologized and are setting up a new one and will let us know when that is done. I expect to hear back this week.

I am so bummed I cant get the hang of inserting live links... but all you have to do is copy and past the URL into a new tab or window...

Please go here and read the Declaration of Support of Public Education... if you agree with the principles contained within this Declaration, please consider signing the petition...

And please, if you have the inclination, see how different this Declaration is to what the Our Schools Coalition has put forward as 'community, grass roots desires' for public education...

Nowhere else to put this, but if like me you don't like what the Alliance for Education/Our Schools Coalition is doing around town (trying to influence teacher contract bargaining and education reform, claiming it speaks for the SPS community), you might like to take the time to tell them, either on their blot or on their facebook page, which URL I have included at the top...
