VOTE YES on Measure C Schools & Kids, posted by Community courtesy, a resident of another community, on Apr 15, 2009 at 7:23 pm
It took no time at all to characterize the NO campaign as using funds specified for educational and facilities as some $11 million as reserves. The reality is that such funds identified by NO on Measure C advocates are in fact specified funding for educational and facilities purposes in 2009/2010. Those funds, properly allocated, are not sufficient to conduct all educational programs in 2009/2010.
Clearly, we all agree that SRVUSD must live within OUR means, but we should not confuse <$5 increase per month in parcel taxes as overwhelming to our community of voters. Let us focus on the reality and not the bank balances.
Your majority of neighbors ask that neighbors vote YES on Measure C.

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.
