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!

Excellent question Molly. As far as I can tell the last two GUHSD props were Prop U(Read More $274,000,000)http://www.guhsd.net/index.php/proposition-u-information ) and Prop H ( $417,000,000)http://www.guhsd.net/safeschools/GUHSDFAQ.html ) But these propositions pass carte blanche just like incumbents get re elected by a constituency distracted by shiny objects.

One school? Uh, have you been paying attention to all of the upgrades happening at other GrossmontRead More Union HS schools and Charters around the area? Lots of stuff happening. I for one am glad to see this building finally upgraded after such a long time. Drama, acting, arts and the like don't get nearly as much attention as they should in our local schools. VERY HAPPY to see this project completed. ONCE A SCOTTIE, ALWAYS A SCOTTIE!

There are so many issue with our education system that it's difficult to put it in few words. !.Read More Is it coincidental that education took a nose-dive after the teacher unions became very strong and demanding? 2. Is it coincidental that education took a nose-dive when the school districts went into the business of parenting? 3. Is it coincidental that education took a nose-dive when someone decided that every kid should go to college even if they don't have the ability to do so? Thank goodness GUHSD is going back to having vocational programs for kids that have no chance or desire to go to college. Next, they should quit social promotion of kids. Pushing kids through K-8 even though they failed math and english set them up for HUGE failure in high school. Years ago, I remember kids being held back. They didn't eventually drop out of high school but that was the only year that they were held back. We need to quit worrying about "self-esteem". The embarrassment of being held back or being in a class that is actually named "remedial math" or "remedial english" is a motivator. Lastly, parents need to do their job. Always standing up for your kid even when they don't deserve it does absolutely nothing. All what it does is empower them to disrespect other students and their teachers. When they get into the real world, they will be fired from their job for their behavior and sense of entitlement.

It's exactly what critics of the Common Core school curriculum warned about: Partisan politicalRead More statements masquerading as English lessons finding their way into elementary school classrooms.Teaching materials aligned with the controversial national educational standards ask fifth-graders to edit such sentences as “(The president) makes sure the laws of the country are fair,” “The wants of an individual are less important than the well-being of the nation” and “the commands of government officials must be obeyed by all.” The sentences, which appear in worksheets published by New Jersey-based Pearson Education, are presented not only for their substance, but also to teach children how to streamline bulky writing.http://m.townhall.com/tipsheet/leahbarkoukis/2013/11/07/common-core-lessons-blasted-for-sneaking-politics-into-elementary-classrooms-n1742088

Well said Tromanus! The article is very misleading too. This alleged assault did not happen ONRead More CAMPUS, and to my knowledge not at the school. It was elsewhere in the neighborhood. Thanks Patch for spreading false information and creating panic among parents at the school mentioned in your article.

This story has been grossly blown out of porportion and there are many facts that are not correct.Read More This story is about two juvenilles and blasting this story with incorrect information will only blow it further out or porportion. I feel for the children involved and wish that the editor would have thought with some compassion and common sense before writing this story. The police investigator investigating this incident even said that things got out of hand. These are two kids we are talking about and this has the potential to harm their well being for the rest of their lives. Think before you write!!!
