I have two elementary and two middle school children in Pleasanton schools.
After talking to other parents and to teachers, everyone seems so sad, so discouraged. Maybe the Walnut Grove fiasco, started it, but I have friends at about four other schools, and they all say the atmosphere and morale among the teachers, staff, and students is just remarkably low. Seems like the most common complaint by the teachers, is lack of support by the parents, by the principals, by the unions(!), by the superintendent, and by the district office.
This has got to be affecting our kids, and diminishing the quality of their education. Is this what we want in Pleasanton. No, I don't think so.
