I am glad to see Town Square Posting. The column is over due.

You did not do the comments on the parcel tax justice. The parcel tax and the districts list of cuts has been the top topic of posts for weeks. There have been many comments that deserve to be printed in hard copy.
This topic needs more consideration than others because it is a forum for parents to voice concerns without fear of our children being effected.

PUSD is playing hide the pea by talking about emotional cuts. Don't participate in those discussions, it only divides parents, pitting one important program against another.

We are comparable to San Ramon in most ways demographics and test scores.

Even with San Ramon's parcel tax revenue, Pleasanton has more money per student than San Ramon. San Ramon's administrators did not take their raises.

Many of us are skeptical of PUSD's choice of cuts since they seem to be intended to manipulate the community to approve a parcel tax.

hire an independent professional to come in and really look at the books,
After seeing serious cuts, kept away from our kids, if I believed there was still a true need, then I would support a parcel tax.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
