PUSD, Armageddon and Trust
Original post made by Start Afresh on Jun 13, 2011
Superintendent Ahmadi has been advised this past year on several occasions that she has inherited a "Trust Deficit" brought on by prior superintendents. The advice was coupled with recommendations to restore that trust through sound educational, managerial and fiscal excellence and new best practices in K-12 education.
This year's budget process, together with the Measure E campaign, was an exercise in Armageddon fear mongering as described here (Web Link).
Rather than comb through voter records to determine which supporters did not vote and strategize how to run a better GOTV marketing/political campaign, PUSD would better serve the community by doing what is right for the students.
Restoring trust with effective educational leadership will serve PUSD and the community well.

The community does trust the school district. We have excellent schools. I support PUSD running a better marketing campaign. Doing that is doing the right thing for our students.

I agree with concerned parent. The post has a definite 'When did you stop beating your wife?' quality about it. Just a way for Start Afresh to trot out tired old views as a means probably of deflecting attention from more interesting, thought-provoking threads.

Seems like it is not over for Start Afresh's campaign to build distrust in this community. She preaches to distrust before listening to the facts, ignore the truth behind the school budget, and then claim fraud. She really takes us for idiots to think we haven't done our homework to find out what is going on at the state level to fund our schools. All that Start Afresh and her blog does is build more distrust for her and this fraction of our community that is out to take down what the rest of us work so hard to build. Really Start Afresh, what have you done for the schools to improve them?
