I have attended coffees, the forum, and read up on the issues. I encountered many of these issues when our three students went through LCUSD. The same bad teachers still fail to teach the same subjects, so it is not a surprise that the math and science scores have flat-lined at an unacceptably low level; it would have been a surprise if they hadn't.
At her coffees and the debate, candidate Ellen Multari says we need another parcel tax, this one as high as $1,000 per-year-per-home, and a 2.5% real estate transfer tax on the sale of homes in LCF. This is the same mistake our board always makes, thinking that you can solve every problem by throwing someone else's money at it. The monies raised will not solve the mismanagement of the district by this school board. And voting for the incumbent, who has presided over the board forever, is not an option.
