We have to make people aware that our State is run by public employee Unions and we need court casesRead More like today which ruled that the California Teacher Tenure rules are unconstitutional so that we can change laws and vote people out of office who do not represent the interests of the public who pay the taxes.

Something that is interesting to note is that high school grads are going to four year universitiesRead More and studying subject that isn't marketable. While on the other hand you have people getting vocational training at vocational schools that essentially guarantees them a job out of school that will make them 'x' amount of money. So it isn't that college degrees are worthless, some are. It is also said that sometimes trade school is the right choice!

The bottom line is that you'll do better in school if the teacher likes you. Accept the liberalRead More indoctrination, and things will go better. Cite Karl Marx at every opportunity, and you'll be tops.

Absolutely it should be still taught. I write in cursive everday and will be teaching my childrenRead More regardless of whether it is taught in school or not. It not only teaches children to read it, but it builds fine motor skills, improves penmanship, and has anyone considered how many neuropathways the children are building when learning this new skill? It will also serve them later on in life when they encounter jobs that will need those skills and attention to detail.

The major danger in common core is its potential to become an indoctrination tool under the controlRead More of some unaccountable faceless committee somewhere. Our kids are already bombarded by liberal personal philosophies from individual teachers, but is the textbook questions have slanted wording, and there is no hard copy for the parents to check, just e-readers, they could get by with massive abuse. We should not surrender local control.

The common core central system has massive potential for abuse as an indoctrination tool. AlreadyRead More there are examples of slanted wording in some of the materials. We should not surrender local control.

Please go to www.cuacc.org to learn more. The curriculum will have every child read the same books,Read More and learn at the same rate. The federal government should not control state education, and that it is academically substandard. States will have a difficult time paying the cost of implementing and maintaining Common Core State Standards.

I take my aluminum cans back for recycling, clip coupons, drive old cars, and the school board wantsRead More to TRIPLE my parcel tax? I feel their scorn and contempt for me, and I can't WAIT to return the favor on March 4th.

Proposition 30 passed in November 2012 and taxed high income earners and raised sales tax. ThisRead More money was suppose to go to our schools, but instead billions went to fund the California teacher's pension. Now Common Core State Standards are being implemented in our public schools is at an additional cost. Vote NO on parcel tax.
