Before you complete your Measure C Ballot Schools & Kids, posted by Community courtesy, a resident of another community, on Apr 3, 2009 at 6:22 pm
**Received from SRVUSD today**
SRVUSD appreciates Iron Horse neighbors willingness to communicate with our district management about Measure C concerns.
Just so you know, there is a meeting scheduled for April 16, 7:30 PM at Stone Valley Middle School. This is a factual presentation regarding the current and future budget outlook for our school district, as well as the mail-only parcel tax (Measure C) for which registered voters will receive their mail-in ballots next week. Our superintendent and a member of our school board will be there to present to the Alamo community and answer questions.
SRVUSD encourages neighborhoods to let as many people as possible know about the meeting and encourage them to attend and ask questions.
Thanks again for your support!

I keep having my comments erased. I'm sorry my opinions are too real for people to take. Your censorship won't stop me. I went to los cerros and monte vista. I'm 27 and I think 75% of the teachers were total losers. I remember my math teacher used to flirt with the 8th grade girls and hide behind the projector screen like a 4 year old. We don't need more money. We need less teachers. When my parents went to school, there were fifty to ninety kids per class, and they learned more. Why? Because everyone shut up and listened. We need discipline in the class. One way to break down discipline is to amp the kids up on sugar. We should not have candy and sodas sold in schools. The teachers unions fought getting rid of jumk food in schools because they want to tax it to give the money "to the schools," ie: to them. They don't give a damn about the kids. Their demands for smaller class sizes is because that means we have to hire more teachers. By the way, we already have plenty of money being sucked from our property taxes to go to our schools. The problem is, we don't spend it on our kids. We send it to Oakland and Richmond, on bilingual education for illegal immigrants and group home kids who murder our children (Rylan Fuchs.) No doubt, 90% of the extra money that they wish to take from us through prop C will within a few years be allotted to other schools.
