    Overarching themes include false, misleading and unsubstantiated information.

    "The majority of teachers and community members are outraged". Unsubstantiated.

    Nitpicking would be telling you that Buchholz is spelled with a double "h".

    My point was that May 8th's BOE statement contradicts Nelson's version of events that she spoke about at the May 1 meeting.

    In the May 8 statement, the BOE said that Dr. Gordon informed Ms....

    I disagree. It's been four years. The admin and prior BOE have had four years to prove that specialization is better than traditional. It's been a hot topic for awhile. Plenty of time to see if this...
