It's not being shown on Channel 52 on Comcast - what gives? Are they conspiring with 440?

There was a "glitch", they eventually fixed it.

The arrogance of "reformers" cannot be matched. There is a room full of people and Hite is still using the term "empty seats.' These are PEOPLE you are talking to Dr. Hite.

ORGANIZE! Two years ago, Dr. Hite tried this in Prince George's County. He ran into a boatload of opposition from the parents in Bowie and the city officials. He cancelled a hearing hours before it was to start, having given into the parents.

What kind of heart does it take to listen to a child talk about not wanting their school closed, and then get a patronizing "Good job." after they finish, as if they are just doing a class assignment and not speaking from the heart. After all of these corporate reformers have finished this step on their career path and they have moved on, and these children must grow up with the consequences of their actions, I hope the voices of these children haunt their dreams for the rest of their lives!
