My husband and I moved into Pleasanton a couple months ago and we really love it. The people hear are great. We're not thrilled with the public education system though.
We see many teachers as bad citizens, and teachers' unions as greedy "takers", and we don't want our children exposed to these types of people. And then there's the suppression of the "evolution" vs. creationism debate, resistance to stem cell research, and their always pushing the dogma about a changing, increasingly "pluralistic" (multi-cultural) society. Just look at how they worship the Gay lifestyle and even create a special month for Black people. We're German Americans, but I don't recall any special holidays for us. In short, we see a "liberal conspiracy" to take our children away from God and all that is good about being a real American.
We're thinking about homeschooling our six children. We can't afford a private school, and the public schools are infected with all kinds of evil. Has anyone in Pleasanton tried homeschooling? How does it work for you? Thank you in advance!
