Welcome to our special coverage of the Silver Consolidated Schools Board Meeting on Tuesday 15 December 2015.

The matter of the display of large Confederate flags on the vehicles of students – parked immediately adjacent to Cliff High School – that was addressed in last month’s meeting was met not just with stony silence by the majority of the SCS board, but by a challenge from board member Tony Egan that the matter could not even be discussed in Open Public Comment.  Not surprising, given that Egan, backed by board member Arnold Torres declared intention to eliminate Open Public Comment altogether, and indeed that item was on the agenda for a “1st reading” in this meeting.

This week Gender Trouble is hosting Adrien Lawyer from the Transgender Resource Center of New Mexico.  Adrien and myself will be presenting a discussion on Transgender 101.  Adrien is a trans man (female to man) and I am a trans woman (male to female.  We each bring a different perspective to the subject.  I think this will be a very educational and interesting discussion.
