LOCAL Commentary :: Education & Youth


The 4/20/04 Santa Cruz Sentinel article on the recent school board decision (and now reconsideration) to move Beach Flats students to Gault School was an example of incomplete and inaccurate reporting. I wonder who was feeding the reporter this information, but maybe if he went to the actual school board meetings and stayed for the final vote, he could get it right. That is, if he wants to.

Superintendent Pagano is not replacing the current Gault principal with simply a "district administrator"; Mary Anne James was the principal at Branciforte Elementary from 1993 to 2003. Ms. James is bilingual, biliterate, and a veteran principal with nearly 20 years experience with bilingual education and issues. To label her a "district administrator" is a misrepresentation designed to rally around parent groups at Gault who are protesting the reassignment of their principal. I worked with Ms. James at Branciforte for 13 years; they should be thrilled and relieved!

In a statement made at the last Board Meeting, n 3 programs were publicly listed to maintain current open enrollment members: the Bilingual Program at Bayview, the Dual Immersion program at Branciforte (which will move to Gault), and Monarch School, not the Gault Arts Infusion program. Except for these 3 programs, all other Open Enrollment agreements will be revoked, as is necessary in the crisis which requires school closures.

The Board made the decision to reconsider attendance zones in the Beach Flats as a response to some of the Beach Flats community members who spoke at the March board meeting. Honoring this request will over enroll the new Gault school, and must be reconsidered.

Reporting on these issues should be accurate and complete.

LOCAL Commentary :: Police State

Pacific Avenue Rag

This is an adaptation of a Woody Guthrie tune that I did in the summer of 2002, during the struggle over the new and de-proved Downtown Ordinances. Use freely! It is being sung on Wednesdays at the Sing Out, an intentional civil disobedience action, in front of New Leaf Market downtown, 6-8PM.
