The Pasadena Unified School District is asking for public input as it redraws the attendance boundaries for its elementary, middle and high schools. By redrawing its attendance zones, PUSD has an opportunity to fix one of the major problems that's been crippling the district in recent decades. But will the district take this opportunity, or let it slip away?

I really, really, really want to ride these two attractions some day. Pooh was down for refurb when I visited Tokyo, and Hong Kong is the one Disney park I haven't visited yet.

The State of California has asked local school districts to get direction from their communities about their schools' goals for the future. Let's back that up in Pasadena with some hard data instead of yet another collection of anecdotes.
