As a parent *I'm* responsible for monitoring my child's social life/media. I think it'sRead More overreaching for a school to monitor a child's behavior outside of school (beyond getting to and from school, esp if by school bus, and school-run recreational activities), unless a parent/guardian signs an agreement to allow such. If the child is posting things under a "public" setting, anyone has the right to view it; they should control their own settings if they don't want someone they don't know monitoring what they are doing. Again, a parent should ensure they are doing that! I think parents often need to step up and be responsible for their own kids, rather than expecting someone else to or blaming them when something goes wrong. Why can't a parent say, "I should have been watching my child," instead of blaming a school that has hundreds of children to keep up with? Oh... maybe b/c it's admitting that they didn't uphold their job of being a parent. Besides, if a school is focusing too much on things outside of the classroom there's less time to focus ON the classroom.

What schools.? What classes.? What percentage of students.? WHERE.? My wife works in our publicRead More schools...our kids went to these schools...all this homework is news to me. Half the kids are saggy pants...sideways hat wearing...ghetto vocabulary dumb s(h)its. Unless we are talking about college prep schools/students...I have a feeling a lot of this "home work" is catch up on stuff they should have mastered in grade school. The USA is in its death throes. Ask a kid where Gaza is. Ask a kid for a short definition of E=MC2. good luck

I'd like to point out the **STELLAR** scores at PSA. A 940 in its first year is INCREDIBLE!!!! IRead More do think it's had slight impact on the lower scoring at the other schools, though, since many of their top students were among the selected applicants for PSA.
The Fairfield Suisun Unified School District is a big winner after Governor Brown and the legislature eliminated redevelopment agencies.

Reap Benefits? Not sure I understand the new math? Suisun Redevelopment funds went 100% to SuisunRead More City. Now the State has reallocated those earmarked Suisun City funds to County, Special District, Community College, and Education Revue 0% to Suisun City. K-12 maybe 30% to Suisun City, and Office of Education maybe 10% to Suisun City. Exactly how does this new math work?
