It seems a giant can of worms has been opened. You're welcome to toss tenure but please, do not getRead More rid of basic due process. I've worked for too many folks who think due process belongs somewhere else and NOT in the teaching profession.

It's about time! Being parents in Los Altos, a district considered one of the top in CA, we haveRead More seen utterly underperforming teachers cruising along just because they think they are "safe". Think about our children, please!

I don't agree with Los Altos resident. Most of the under performing students don't do their work andRead More disrupt the class for the other kids that do their work. Most parents don't want to be bothered making sure their kids do their home work and study for their tests. I have seen this time after time. This is just another attack on teachers and I wonder if this attack is only against elementary, middle school and high school teachers. Is the suit attacking college teachers? It should because there are just as many "bad' teachers in college as anywhere else.

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!

Hopefully Calif will soon follow Michigan and the Supreme Court's ruling to ban racist admissionsRead More and go for the best and brightest. Enough of MD's from "special programs" at Stanford who are spoonfed the boards in tiny pieces and got in with D's in chemistry and 20% MCATs. One now works at a clinic in Roatan for 2 whole hours before she goes snorkeling and posting on Facebook.

Cursive is also a fine motor skill, yet another thing kids lose while they learn typing and texting.Read More I am sad that my kids won't be able to read notes from their grandmother, or explore family or world history with this lack of cursive.
