I think its wonderful that Mark Zuckenberg donated to our schools, but I predict it will never reachRead More our classrooms. The district will spend it on more "coaches" and specialists, more teacher training programs and technology. Meanwhile we will still have a high percentage of combo classes, jammed with 31 -32, English language learners, poverty, high needs students.

Hope the RCSD is watched like a hawk. Commenter Huff is absolutely correct in her assessment. HowRead More many "donated" Ping golf club SETS have disappeared from Kennedy Middle? What happened to the sewing machines from storage areas? RCSD needs to be absorbed into a larger district so the children get the full benefits from donors.

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.

I would like to see this list separated between open enrollment schools, and those that are magnetsRead More or selective.

It is refreshing to see that integrating knowledge across disciplines to solve problems, thinkRead More creatively, and apply real world solutions is the focus. Its how one functions out there !
Blue is bad news. California is among 17 states/districts where eighth-graders had lower-than average math test scores.

The problem with using an article from outside of our area, Larkspur-Corte Madera, is it is notRead More relevant to schools in our area. It is a disservice to our school district as we have enjoyed impressive state reading scores that are definitely higher than the national and state averages. I feel you owe an apology to the teachers and parents in our district who work very hard to help our children perform well on these type of tests.

For what "an apology"? This report is very much uncolored with respect to anything, butRead More simply informs that for all the California tax $ put into public education, the results are less than mediocre. Is Larkspur-CM so insular that we as voters can forget the rest of the state? Think about the future here: these kids won't have the ability to earn the living required to pay taxes needed to avoid a bankrupt California. On the other hand, if we require that burrito stands pay their formerly illegal employees a minimum hourly wage of, say, $25 or more then there's just maybe a chance at solvency....

You should know that the Patch is a nationwide organization and will often post articles from otherRead More locations onto what appears to be local to you. This is because they are pretty much broke and trying to stay alive by putting out content no matter how irrelevant. This is all despite the publishers stated goal of hyper local news. I usually check the URL or the author to see where stuff is really coming from.

Marc, don't you get it you can only build sandcastles with the help of Government. Now fall in lineRead More and become a good little Democrat.

Sorry, I forgot that beaches were not public but property of the state comrade.
