The March 2011 CUEE Kick-Off meeting “dialog” conveniently omitted Rev. Floyd Rose’s question, which I believe was about what will unification do to improve education.
The “public dialog” at that meeting consisted of written questions being selected by CUEE. Even so, the answers sufficed to demolish all of CUEE’s main selling points, including CUEE’s own hired expert said
“If you believe in the end that running one system is cheaper than running two school systems. If in the end you are going to cast a vote for a single system because you think it would save money, I wouldn’t cast my vote. I do not think it will save money.”
The Kick-Off meeting was used to roll out the education committee, to paper over the little problem that CUEE has no plan to improve education. If anything was said of it reporting before the referendum, I must have missed it.
Here’s a playlist. Perhaps someone can point out where they said that.

Where are CUEE’s videos of their own kick-off meeting?
Tomorrow I will post videos of the only actual dialog (no quotes) about school unification I’ve heard of. Not coincidentally, it was not organized by CUEE.
