My family just moved here. I am an Active Duty Military member (women) who right now works nights but has a unpredictable sked. My Husband is a stay at home dad but now is trying to find a job in the Tri-Valley Area. Not only do we have to take our kids back and forth to school but my son has to go to a school 4 miles away from where we live. Because of the age of my kids and not be able to trust other people and my own children's judgement, we are forced to drive them. I want to know why we as parents are asked for tons of money from the school and have to drive them. Where are all of the school buses? Also since we are rich like most of this community seems to be, will any or most local employer (s) that will allow my Husband in allowing for pick up and drop off of kids. And also cover for the fact that the kids have late day's on Wed's. And is there any child care anywhere that will cover before school and after school care that do not want your life savings. Everyone said Pleasanton Schools are some of the most top ranked school's in California. But what I see are parents being forced to change their sked and life and micro manage homework and other details. The reason why the school does so well is cause we as parents are doing all the work. My 6th grader is expected to write things that resemble a term paper and ease drop on private conversations in order to make up a good story for class. What kind of crap is that. So can someone shed some light on all of this. No mean comments either, I am military so therefore that does not fly. I want answers not crap from parents that think catering to their children 24/7 when they are old enough to not be micro-managed, is ok. PS that is not my real name either.
