We set up to broadcast live Thursday night's meeting for parents on Victoria's west side.

In my experience, redrawing attendance boundaries stirs up a community. I've seen people almost come to blows about where their kids attend school.

But no one showed up to Thursday's meeting. And only a handful showed up for Tuesday's meeting for parents on the east side.

Does that mean school district officials have accomplished the impossible and pleased everyone? What questions do you have that we should explore in future coverage about the changes? Why do you think no one showed up?
