Rebuttal To Balanced Calendar Presentation At Monday’s LAPS Meeting
I’m grateful to the school for providing more information about the calendars during Monday’s presentation and Q&A. I am concerned about the balanced calendar presentation. 17 minutes out of one hour were given to Tony Hinojosa to discuss the Balanced Calendar, Calendar B. No time was provided for presentations in favor of a traditional or more hybrid calendar, Calendars A and C. We were given a sales pitch for Calendar B that was studded with fallacies, some factual errors, and general oversimplifications. Given the very public format of the meeting, I feel like a public rebuttal is also warranted. I deeply respect that the opinions shared belong to Mr. Hinojosa, represent his voice, and thank him for sharing them. I am confident that he has shared them with the best of intentions.

LAPS: National Drug & Alcohol Facts Week Is Mar. 20-26
National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week®, or NDAFW, is an annual, week-long, health observance that inspires dialogue about the science of drug use and addiction among youth. It provides an opportunity to bring together scientists, students, educators, healthcare providers and community partners to help advance the science and address youth drug and alcohol use in communities and nationwide. It was launched in 2010 by scientists at the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) to stimulate educational events in communities so teens can learn what science has taught us about drug use and addiction. The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism became a partner in 2016, and alcohol has been added as a topic area for the week. NIDA and NIAAA are part of the National Institutes of Health, and work with leading organizations, media outlets, and other Government agencies to spread the word about NDAFW.
