GIPPERGATE: PUSH TO NAME ALPINE HIGH SCHOOL FOR REAGAN SPARKS COMPLAINTS OVER SCHOOL BOARD'S TACTICS



Board meets May 13; Critics slam GUHSD for secretly stacking advisory board with conservative political figures

May 12, 2010 (Alpine) – Why doesn’t the Grossmont Union High School District (GUHSD) want the public to be given the names of people appointed to serve on a committee to name Alpine’s planned new high school?

“It’s a secret that East county’s high school district evidently would prefer you didn’t know,” stated a San Diego Union-Tribune editorial.  The GUHSD board forced the newspaper to file an official public records act request to obtain committee members' names.

The list suggests the GUHSD trustees hand-picked political figures, a large majority of whom support naming the new school after former president Ronald Reagan.
