Ouster of Papadakis

The best thing that ever happened to public education was Papadakis. They couldn't buy her, break her and they sure couldn't beat her because she was right about the bilingual program, so they railroaded her off the board.

Truth, justice, dedication, intelligence count for nothing in Sacramento. Only rubber-stamps are retained. Is it any wonder California is at the bottom scholastically?

I am mad as hell and I'm not the only one. Students, parents, the entire community are mad. We were all sold down the river when Assembly Speaker Willie Brown and his rubber-stamps pulled the seat out from under Papadakis.
