You can bet that Douglas whose tea party supporters are largely racist will go back on her claim that she supports local control of schools on this issue! RECALL DOUGLAS!

Hupp is a dick and the person elected to replace him I suspect is no better(I’ll be signing the recall petition after 180 days are up)..but TUSD needs to get rid of the unitary status 40 year drawn out segregation baloney….
Put aside your feelings on political ethnic control and realize that all this bad publicity really accomplishes is making the great teachers and principles in TUSD want to tuck tail and run…and any parents that have a choice will look at any school besides one in the TUSD boundary…
Trust me….I’m a parent.
