Hopefully this pic. attached ok.
Our event made front page,"above the fold" of Daily Post. It showed a great photo as well...that's the good news.
Sadly, the title showed the perspective:
"School crowding worries", and you'd think the panelists blamed ABAG for the 2,800 allocation and that's what Fran, Ray, Dana, and Ray talked about, as opposed to what they actually did - which was to uniformly praise the schools for being excellent and look for ways to increase funding for them and children throughout the state.
You'd never know that there was, as Don Weden noted afterwards, "much light and less heat" put on this issue.
John did a great job of moderating, and Elliot taped the entire event.
Channing House provided superb technical assistance - sound was perfect.
Do read the article (not online) as it did provide one important development that may have arisen from the discussion - regarding a potential Foothill DeAnza' partnership with PAUHSD.
