This article is so poorly written. It's as though the writer just took down everything she heard and didn't ask any questions.

So Gilbert Public Schools decides it can't host a breakfast in honor of Martin Luther King for 2010 and that's the end of the story. Did anyone check with the Higley Unified School District which is entirely within the Town of Gilbert to see if they would host it? Was there any other way to host it without the help of the Gilbert School District?

When did the Town of Gilbert and Gilbert Public Schools get joined at the hip?
