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!

Which goes to prove "temporary" taxes are very rarely temporary.

Let's re-evaluate how this tax is to be paid in the future. Eliminate ALL government (taxpayer)Read More funding. Take the total BUDGET for the school year and divide it by the total number of students. Each parent is to be charged that amount per kid they have enrolled. There is no such thing as "free" education when the cost is paid by taxes. Those who are populating the planet should pay their fair share. It is a tax subsidy. There is no representation for the single person who does not have children. You can thank the next single person you meet in town. Oh but I know, you won't. But I don't care, I am 65. Good luck to the rest of you suckers.

Makes sense. As long as we keep eroding and buffering the standards , our Politicians and SchoolRead More Boards will one day have a 100% Graduation Certificate to hang on their "I Love Me" walls!! Truth is , we as a nation spend more money per student than any other Nation in the world on primary education only to have our "graduates" rank 14th in the world......right behind Iceland.So before we run around the building and shake hands with ourselves, maybe we should take a moment to ponder some new innovations in education and stop throwing money into an endless pit!

Nice. I think unfortunately most of the parents are too tired from a day at the office to do this.Read More Maybe ask the parents but replace teaching state mandated history lessons about gay people and farmworkers with such lessons like this one that are more meaningful in LIFE. That is a good start.

Just because he attended a Dublin high school doesn't mean the Superintendent needs to send out aRead More letter to the parents of every kid in the district.
L March 27, 2014 at 02:25 pm
Timothy - Really? Now, I have no problem with teachers discussing proper behavior on the internet.Read More It is a valuable lesson. However, teachers are not parents. If parents are "too tired" from the office, they better figure out how to squeeze a 15 minute conversation in between email sessions and take care of their kids, or else deal with the consequences of having delinquent children.

Beth my daughter said the same thing re another child involved (not sure if he knew what he wasRead More drinking). I heard this story from my daughter first. Then Patch. Nothing from the school very disappointing
Beth Brizee January 15, 2014 at 10:40 pm
Same story my daughter told me - sad that we have to disseminate information from 13 year oldRead More hearsay. There is a Coffee with the Principal 1/16 8:30 am. I wish I could be there but work precludes my attendance. I am still hoping for some communication, a week later, so that we can have accurate information in which to address the issue with our children.
Jaimie January 17, 2014 at 04:49 pm
Beth, Ms DeWitt here. I hope you and my favorite girl are doing well! I'm not writing as aRead More representative of WMS, I'm writing as a teacher and a mother. As a teacher, we have to remember that each and every student that enters our campus is a child. These children need guidance, not to have their business aired across the internet and in letters home to their classmates parents. If your daughter (and I know this would never happen) were a part of a similar situation, I know you as a parent, wouldn't want your information or information spread across the community. I think as a mom, this is an opportunity to talk to our kids about how to respond if they suspect someone is drinking or doing drugs, or even further, if someone may offer them to participate. This is an isolated incident, and sadly, should probably have never been reported on through the Patch. It doesn't really matter the specifics or who was involved, it's more likely than not, that information has already been dealt with behind closed doors, as it should be. Your children are safe and if you feel like you need more communication, share that with the school, not with other parents, or here on the patch. You made a great suggestion of the Principal's breakfast, if you can't attend, there is always email, phone calls, or even at morning drop off. Let's move forward and make the rest of this year a great year and pray for those students who happened to make a bad choice this time around.
