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!

I hate French beauty pageants. None of the contestants shave, which makes the swimwear competitionRead More a spectacle. I thought one woman had furry shorts on, with a pink bikini OVER them.

Thanks Heather & Denise for the great coverage! Congratulations to all the Case GraduatesRead More (including my son)! Also Congratulations to Mr. Eben and all the great staff at Case H.S. for going the extra mile for our kids! It was a perfect evening to hold the ceremony outside!

Is there something I can go online to see the whole prom?
Ruthann May 17, 2013 at 07:44 pm
Please tell me more about the seating for family and friends. My grandson is going to prom (WaldenRead More lll ) and I have not been on the red carpet for 20 years (they did not charge back then) I don't want to miss out. Thanks Ruthann Mork
Heather Asiyanbi May 17, 2013 at 09:54 pm
@Ruthann - seating is available on the bleachers that line both sides of the red carpet as studentsRead More enter Festival Hall. Last year, Rotary started charging for those seats and had such a good response, members decided to do it again this year. But, because seating is first come, first seated, if a ticketholder went on the tour, they sometimes lost their seat. The stadium cushion is to help provide a more comfortable seat, of course, but is also meant for saving a seat if someone is seated and then called for a tour. You can go to rotaryracine.org to order your tickets, but there will be some available at Festival Hall as well.

Brian, no way am I saying we should fund private education with our tax dollars. Our stateRead More constitution guarantees every child a free PUBLIC education. I'm in no way opposed to private schools. If parents want to send their kids to private schools, THEY should pay for them, not the taxpayers. By the way, you right-wingers ALWAYS gripe about tax increases. Well here's another FACT. Vouchers have already increased our taxes by over 4% this year. Without them we'd have had no educational tax increase.

My son transferred to public from private school for his senior year due to a personality conflict.Read More He was 18, and had authority issues with the Dean. That last year, he got As in public school and barely made minimum attendance. He laughed and said he learned all that already in the other school the year before. Now, he is looking at private school for his girls.

Should they cap executive compensation for companies receiving tax subsidies and such? btw... I doRead More think the salary is high. I was just curious how far you would be willing to take salary restrictions?
Django Freeman April 18, 2013 at 09:13 pm
I don't mind her making that much, as long as she improves the quality of RUSD schools, but I doubtRead More that's even an achievable goal. Especially since she probably has a liberal ideology.
Lika Phipps April 28, 2013 at 06:26 am
It's not so much that I mind that, the problem is, the Superintendent is getting $200,000, PLUSRead More benefits, PLUS travel expenses, PLUS housing, PLUS who knows what else, in an economy that is stagnant, on top of which, we all could use a little subsidy. For accepting that much income, benefits, and fringe benefits, she better be worth it. For that price, she needs to be able to be effective for our students, not be a rubber stamp yes ma'am.

Walden has not been a lottery school for many years. In fact, before the REAL School opened. It isRead More the very reason the REAL School opened....ask Mr Maryland who started the REAL School. I didn't say it wasn't a good school...they have wonderful teachers and students. But their students are indeed hand picked and come with teacher recommendation letters. Clearly you don't know how that school has changed.

WIwishes-Apparently you haven't had much to do with Walden lately. I have one child at Walden andRead More one on the waiting list. Both children are at the top of their game when it comes to grades, test scores, activities, and behaviors. I wish they did hand pick students because then I would have two children in the same school rather than in two schools. It is easy to claim the kids are hand picked and that is the reason they are successful, but their success comes from the fact that the parents and the kids want to attend that school. When you have engaged families the kids do better in school. Also, the zero tolerance policy at Walden probably contributes to the all around better environment for learning. When teachers don't have discplinary issues to deal with they can actually teach and our kids can actually learn.

I see you chose not to respond about your stance on vouchers. If you are so concerned about moneyRead More leaving the district from open enrollements, aren't you concerned about the money from voucher students?
Heather Asiyanbi March 20, 2013 at 01:22 pm
@Danielle - I'm working on it ...
taxpayer March 20, 2013 at 03:27 pm
I understand that Mr. Frontier not only signed the recall petitions, but also circulated 65Read More petitions.
