Incidentally, why are teachers’ names absent from the web post? Are they ashamed of signing the petition? Reply admin November 2, 2016 Unfortunately, we are unsure why the names are not shown on the attachment. This is the attachment that was sent to us, so we will be following up to see if there is a copy with the names of the teachers that signed the petition! Once we receive it, we will update this article with the correct PDF. Reply Ze'ev Wurman November 2, 2016 Thanks for the clarification. The question still stands. Ahana Ganguly November 2, 2016 There’s also a petition against weighted GPA (paly.io/uwgpa), started today, with 126 supporters so far.
