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!

Pat Kittle: The fact that virtually all media is owned by Jewish people is common knowledge, I don'tRead More see how pointing that out could be viewed as being anti-semitic. A huge percentage of our lawmakers and political leaders are also Jewish, again pointing that out shouldn't be viewed as anti-semitic. However, If somebody were to make a big stink about how so many of our Jewish lawmakers, political leaders, and members of congress are Israeli citizens....I wouldn't be entirely surprised to hear/read about that person being demonized as "racist".

Pat Kittle: I'm pulling the Jew card on you. I'm reporting you to the Anti Defamation LeagueRead More — http://www.adl.org/combating-hate/ — for your online hate speech. If you get really out of hand I'll report you to the FBI. Now the Brothers will be watching you.

I'm sorry, no human being is worth half a million (+) a year plus to run a school. Someone, please,Read More give me a break.

UCSC students and TAs should study the protest strategies of Quebec's students strikers. The QuebecRead More strike was so effective that it brought down a provincial government and made the students into a political force to be reckoned with. http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2012/sep/07/quebec-students-lesson-protest-politics

In the world of Common Core, reading classic literature is no longer considered essential, in fact,Read More it is shoved off to the side. The literacy gap will grow as private school students continue to read, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Crucible, Catcher in the Rye, and public school students will read documents, and even instruction manuals, as their "core' curriculum.
