The four remaining Burbank Unified school board candidates addressed bullying, Measure S spending and district hurdles Thursday morning during a forum hosted by the Burbank Assn. of Realtors.
On bullying, incumbent Larry Applebaum said the expanding technology at schools would necessitate that educators discuss the hazards of social media with elementary students “prior to them ever getting any kind of device to access content ... to be able to talk about the appropriate use,” he said.
Candidate David Dobson was asked to identify one issue affecting Burbank schools and provide a solution.
“In the end, we have to deal with the fact that the money’s not there,” he said of state funding for public education.
