Interesting that the Seattle PI online sometimes has more information about local stories than the Seattle Times. There is a recent story about the Garfield HS homecoming froshing/hazing that has a lot of new information including a law suit filed by one of the families of the students who were suspended. Here is the link. http://www.seattlepi.com/local/article/Assistant-Principal-Garfield-hazing-5132074.php

NE Mom, that's the "new" Times. They want to write about big national ed reform stories (or non-Seattle schools stories).

Wanting to know, Charlie was going to attend the C&I meeting yesterday where a math adoption update was to be given. Let's see what he has to say.
