My experience in industry is a little different. I have seen forced ranking of everyone in theRead More company. Those who ranked low are cut. This way, the best and brightest.

At least the governor gave billions, from this year's state surplus, to the teacher's union pensionRead More fund. No wonder teachers support a union that will not distinguish between good and bad teaching. Besides the taxpayer sustaining the cost of the "same old same old" public education system there is the added cost of a court to make the distinction. Bummer the teacher's union is not required to reimburse the tax payer for this two year legal battle. Now, it is going to cost the tax payer more for the appeal(s).

Having an effective and objective way to "grade" teachers is a complex issue, but I doRead More believe that the current system is not working. I have seen personally how its basically impossible to fire a teacher who is grossly ineffective - having such feedback from parents and students year after year after year. Any situation that gives automatic tenure and is unable to hold employees accountable is going to be problematic.

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!

This seems more to be a PSD positive, public-relations article put out to the public than real news.Read More How about some real numbers to compare what a reported 10-15% reduction means in the reduction of the number of cars comparing it to an unlisted period of measurement. If anything, I have seen an increase in the number of vehicles being driven especially with one parent/child visible to both Cabrillo and Ortega schools and the resulting traffic tie-ups in the adjacent streets at the start and conclusion of the school day.

CQ - I live near Ocean Shore school and a couple of years ago you could not even think of driving onRead More Oceana and traffic clogged the adjacent streets. Now I see many more kids biking and walking to school. Traffic has been reduced significantly. Ocean Shore has many programs to encourage kids to bike and walk to school. Maybe those programs are not popular or there is a different dynamic at those other schools that causes more of a need for driving. But Ocean Shore has seen a dramatic decrease in traffic.

how about putting the kids in their neighborhood schools instead of the dreaded lottery? I live inRead More Manor and my son goes to Vallemar.. biking to school?? not a chance. Every morning we make the drive to Vallemar and get stuck at that 6 minute light and traffic.. its terrible.
The school cafeteria at Oceana overlooks an organic vegetable garden plot.
