Rumors are just that rumors. Did a district administrator direct Mr. Solorzano to make a transcript change or did the district administrator do it himself? Did Mr. Solorzano take the fall for someone? If so, why is the district person still in his position?

Admission Scandals at major universities, grades changed, others paid to sit-in & take tests for the students or to falsify test scores:
Perhaps we need a very serious, in-depth investigation into All of our High Schools and grade schools as well?
Have wealthy parents been paying for grades?

When average high school GPAs at our middle of the pack UC schools are 4.3, there is a partial shell game going on with grade inflation. Now, let’s look at how Amador and Foothill grads are actually doing garnering admission into our UCs relative to the “average” high school and other Bay Area elites. Answer: not great.

This is in part why we pay the property taxes and high salaries of PUSD administrators, is it not?
