    ALL;

    What must occur is to create a plan for HUSD Trustees to follow, as a means of jacking up their level of courag,e in a war on truancy?

    I can only speculate, but perhaps they need a plan thrown at their feet so that they avoid any hint of racism in their struggle with the use of SB 1317.

    Some may disagree with me on this particular idea… If that is so, perhaps they might suggest another path to successful completion of the first COMPLAINT FILINGS under SB 1317.

    FIRST.

    Select the single worst offender in each general racial group. One Caucasian, one Latino and one Afro American truant. File three actions simultaneously! Let the chips fall where they lay!

    Grab the attention of all three groups simultaneously! Let hell fall on those who see it as a race based prejudicial action. Avoid the estimated cost of placing a parcel tax on a ballot, which alone will run up into a sum ABOVE $100,000.

    SECOND.

    ADD AN ITEM TO THE AGENDA OF EACH BOARD MEETING WHICH IDENTIFIES THE PARTIES AGAINST WHOM THE ACTIONS HAVE ACTUALLY BEEN FILED. File three more such actions within 30 days of each court filing…. Keep the pipe line full! Bring pressure upon the courts for prompt hearing dates. It loses effect if the court delays an action for unreasonable periods of time.

    THIRD.

    Attend the next board meeting, fill out a speaker’s card! Deliver your message personally, do not leave it up to your lazy neighbors… Protect yourself from an unimaginative board of trustees.

    Have not heard a peep out of the New Superintendent.

    Or Eric, for that matter.

    I think the death of this blog is near.

    Qodrn;
    What a blessing that wilol be!

    Picked up several copies of the Hayward News in the Kaiser ER. This is not a bad little publication. However, the local news content is not very high in the issues that I read. I expect this will change with time. Other aspects of the paper were very nice. And, since they are free, this is quite a deal.

    They come out on Friday; I will now go and get one to use for my missing Monday paper. YAY.

    Enjoyed Eric’s tweets on the school board meeting last night. He seems to go home about 9 PM before the meeting is over. I am not saying Eric has to stay there, but it would be lovely if the whole meeting could be covered.

    Eric, you could watch the end on TV and keep on tweeting. Just a thought.

  • Lissa Taylor

    Yes, the real Lissa Taylor. It still amazes me, though it should not, that I made the decision to walk away from a Principalship, as well as, a career that I held for 12+ years with the Hayward Unified School District, after being harassed, beyond measure by distrct adminstration and retaliated against by the same, for protecting the Educational Rights of Continuation High School students, informing parents of their rights, speaking truth to power, and for following the EdCode , AKA, California Law Relating to Minors. Following the Education Code was and is listed on my Teaching as well as Adminstrative Services Credential. It saddens me that some of the same people who lied to parent, railroaded students, and padded their own retirement, are still employed with HUSD! Check October, 2010, Board minutes… Where is my resignation, Olga Pineda’s is there and I resigned before she did. I wrote my letter of resignation, but, mysteriously it never made it into the board minutes, why? Because I dared to tell the truth. Yes, my name is, Lissa Taylor, yes I was the former Principal of Brenkwitz High School, and no, I am no longer employeed in the area of Education. Please check the minutes, you won’t see my resignation(dated, Oct,2010) because the, ” then” Superintendent Duran and my former supervisor Chien Wu-Fernandez and other district administration made sure my resignation never made it into the Board minutes because it would have pointed out the harassment and retaliation I endured to force me out, nothing ever happened to the District Admiistration, but the Brenkwitz has changed. It changed back into a dumping ground, for students who were not wanted at the, Traditional High Schools because they wanted to raise the test scores and get rid of undesirable students. I was a Principal, but I still have teachers who are my friends and I am aware of the “Dumping Ground” the continuation high school has become. Educational Malpractice at it finest. Have any questions email me or my phone number is 925-640-5326, (my real number). I must say all three of my children (grown) children were educated in the HUSD. Hayward Community, check the schools, the budgets, the district administration(especially during the board meeting)and the laws. Before anyone asks why I didn’t report this? I did and have the letter from the U.S. Department of Education to prove it. Again my phone number is above, my email:TAYLOR2LA@comcast.net.

    Amazing

  • Sherry Blair

    I’m sorry to say that the Hayward News has printed it’s last edition. Apparently there were not enough advertisers. Too bad.

  • Teresa

    That is sad to hear. Back to the Monday morning blues I guess.

  • Cynthia Rodriguez

    Lissa Taylor. Are you able to post these letters you have on a website or on the blog?

    And why are the comments repeated twice?

  • John Kyle

    All:

    This submission raises the count to 161 submissions under tyhis subjecttitle….. which is another assurance thatthe blog will soon die of it’s own weight!

    Scrolling down to itme count 161 takes a long toime…… thus we ask the question … why bother?

  • Lissa Taylor

    @cynthia my daughter, a former Hayward student, has been following and commenting on the blog for over a year. She didn’t think I would actually post my truth. Hence the two postings.

  • Lissa Taylor

    Oh and yes I can post them, but not on this blog. Board minutes are a matter of public record.
