Position Papers
The Need for Valid Registration
Harm to the Berkeley Unified School District from cheating in registration and what might be done about it.
End the Fake Lottery at Berkeley High
Berkeley High currently runs a fixed lottery based on neighborhood to place students. A city as bright as Berkeley surely can construct a more beneficial and less offensive system.
Schools are Part of the Neighborhood
The community has been very generous to the schools, passing many special taxes. Schools must reciprocate and be good to the community.
