  1. Stop Common Core

    Well it is good to see that there is improvement in the above areas, I would like to know if the reported information is ‘true numbers’ or the ‘fudged numbers’ so the parents are aware of the TRUTH.

    Based on the reported numbers concerning the minorities it looks like the DOJ is certainly wasting their time on the efforts of desegregating the school districts in the county.

    I would like to say that I know first hand that there was a senior who graduated last spring who did NOT study or even try to pass any class that was assigned to that person yet when the final grade report came in it was ‘adjusted’ to increase many of the final grades in order for that person to graduate.
    Everyone is against common core. Parents please be aware of the coarse work that your child will be presented as it is common core based and be advised that they may change the name or say ‘oh no that’s not what we teach here’ The teachers need their jobs and need students to ‘do well’ so that they keep their jobs and note it what the president of the teachers union said
    “Despite what some among us would like to believe it is not because of our creative ideas. It is not because of the merit of our positions. It is not because we care about children and it is not because we have a vision of a great public school for every child. NEA and its affiliates are effective advocates because we have power.” Quote from the NEA’s annual meeting in July, 2009:
