I am experimenting with a different comments policy than I have had heretofore on this blog. For now, individual posts will not have comments enabled but I will periodically, at least every week or so, post a comments thread where people can respond to posts. This post is a “budget comments” thread for readers to respond to Part I or Part II of my posts on the 2009-10 proposed budget.
I still intend to moderate comments, though I would like to be as transparent and responsive as I can. I see this blog as a way of informing constituents about the inner workings of educational policymaking in San Francisco. But it is still my blog and so I don’t think I need to provide a forum for people who want to 1) insult me, 2)transmit misinformation, 3)hijack the discussion. So I will use those yardsticks and make my own calls about which comments to publish and which to delete. Thanks for reading!
