Bay Area NOW August Meeting: Summary "Quality Education Equals Parents Plus Schools" a panel discussion arranged by Betty Yancey and Rachel Reed, featured CCISD students Edie Whitsett and Camilla Randal, Dorothy Steele of the Clear Creek Classroom Teachers Association, and Richard Griffin, CCISD administrator.

She stressed the desirability of broader school support for student-generated activities, and the need for participatory voting by both parents and students on school issues. Ms. Randal discussed the bias toward male leadership and traditional male activities that characterize high school organization, noting official emphasis on boys' athletics and the cecemonies surrounding
