Lily Mei, congrats on your reelection. Now, stop and desist your un-American practice of censorship. Your habit of micromanaging teachers is deplorable. You have committed mission creep. It's time to recognize your previous bad decisions and change for the better. I have 3 kids in FUSD, so listen to my voice and the overwhelming sentiment of Fremont teachers and parents.
