Position Papers
The "Blueprint": experimenting on our kids
I am a fiscal conservative, so I vote to spend our billion dollar budget on classroom teaching and learning -- NOT on unaccountable consultants, lawyers, poorly designed programs, and an expensive land deal.
San Diego is recognized internationally as a center for bioscience, technology and communication, yet San Diego Unified School District has reduced instruction in math and science.
