Public Expression 2nd Session(no speakers 1st session):
There were several speakers this evening on the subject of alleged unfairness and racial discrimination in the transportation sector of the SCH. It was stated that this is an ongoing problem. Allegedly, employees are not being told about management positions available, until it is too late to apply for the positions. Allegedly, the bus drivers and monitors are not treated well.
The HHS choir was great !!!
Congratulations to all the honorees this evening.
The bus driver/monitor issue has been going on for several years. Why hasn't something been done to correct this???
