It states: "“Capo’s TAs and Budget all passed, mostly on 4-3 votes. So they are inRead More good shape, fiscally for, now. There was clearly tension among the Board members, but I didn’t have a chance to talk with Clark to find out what might be the cause. The majority members blocked comments by the minority members using parliamentary maneuvers. It wasn’t pretty.” Source: Internal e-mail from CUSD Fiscal Expert to Orange County Department of Education https://docs.google.com/document/d/1-Ln-e-F9vYh9nRLb6XyR09Fcif5xxm8_niCzXRLlDAI/edit

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.

I am a veteran teacher. I was teaching high school English before the last "educationalRead More reform" fad. What we did is very similar to the "new" standards. Good schools will continue to be good; troubled students will continue to be troubled. English teachers will still spend weekends grading essays and other student writing. The biggest change for most parents--especially those with elementary school children--will be in the "standards based" report cards. Otherwise it will be the same rainstorm with a new umbrella which will not cover any more than the old umbrella did.

Schools today tend to have parents do the teaching by sending home extreme homework assignments. MyRead More son was a discipline problem in school so he was sent out of class each day to help the custodians while I had to teach him at night with homework. This isnt what schools are for. They are for stimulating and encouraging students to try their best - not to ignore students who need to develop positive goals.
