In the past 11 years of working & living in Pleasanton everyone I have spoken to in this community has pride themselves on what a great school district & family community we live in.
Yet Pleasanton is the only local community that did not pass a parcel tax to support their school district. Nor did the families of students step up & donate during the I Love Pleasanton Schools campaign. It is just so sad to see programs disappear because people refuse to help our children. These programs are not just extracurricular activites, art or musical programs, but Study Hall programs that help students who struggle with homework & can't afford expensive tutoring. The education of our children is important & influences our community. Pleasanton is known for being a successful community with a high median income. I am just so disappointed & sad to see the children of Pleasanton suffer because people refuse to contribute. Although, funny thing is you still see those Coach purses, new cars, designer clothes...etc.
