    Are you for or against La Raza studies?

      Greg, not sure about Lori’s stance with La Raza Studies, so sent her an email that you had commented. Thanks.

  2. Lori and her daughter are both graduates of a TUSD’s University High School. In the beginning of her talk today she handed out a flyer about comparing TUSD with Chandler HS, showing differences in classroom spending, administrative spending, and enrollment between the 2 schools. She said she wanted to make the point about prioritizing funding at TUSD, where she has recently been a substitute teacher on her days off. Questions from audience were about why student enrollment declining in TUSD, whom would she work best with on the current board, the aforementioned auditor general report regarding adm. spending categories, talking with the teachers she subbed for, comparison to Vail School District, charter schools taking students from TUSD, her most important changes to school board, special education, and the TUSD desegregation court order.
