“More than anything, people just want to feel like they’re respected… If people felt more respected, they might have more sympathy for the district’s ongoing financial difficulties.” –Cheyne Cumming, teacher and PAT organizer

Steve Rawley published PPS Equity from 2008 to 2010, when he moved his family out of the district.
