Results of 2007 CHKS-Guns in our Pleasanton schools

I'd much rather see the board address the enormous waste of educational time caused by administering worthless surveys "tests". "Survey" is absolutely right. By 7th grade any kid knows that an anonymous survey is a joke and will embellish just for fun!
