The district is looking for members for the Equity and Race Advisory Committee. This is not in their news page but I saw it in a tweet today. Oddly, it was first put out in August with a September 9th cutoff but that they are tweeting it out may mean something changed. I'll let you know.
There seems to be no end to the comments on the Black Lives Matter shirts that John Muir teachers wore last week at a welcoming event for students as well as the news that the Garfield football team knelt during the national anthem. Director Geary reports this comment sent to her about the team:
Makes me sick to think I put my life on the line for these useless N******S (both white and black). I hope that your football team of monkeys experience many injuries this year so they may know how the many military members who lost life and limb for these worthless POS feel.This person is talking about children. Sickening. And naturally, it flies in the face of our First Amendment.
Wishing you all the worst!
Good article on why third grade is so crucial. I just attended my high school reunion in Arizona and apparently if third graders don't pass their state test, they are held back.
What's on your mind?
