I am voting for Andrew “AJ” Blumenfeld for school board. Why? Because we need new ideas, great ideas from someone who is full of energy and passion about all students. As a member of the school board, AJ would be the voice with the most current experience on behalf of students. This is both unique and extremely valuable. How many of our current school board members have, or have had, kids in La Cañada Unified School District within the last 5-10 years?
AJ is very focused on the middle student. I find this quite impressive because AJ was not a middle student. AJ knows he was identified in elementary school as a fast-tracker and was treated as such through his entire school career; teacher assignment is not random. AJ doesn’t think this is fair. It is at the high school where our district has the largest disparity in quality of teachers.
