Wow that's great! Wait, there is one city missing. The one with the $410,433.71 a year Livermore Superintendent Kelly Bowers.

So how does this align with comments made on an earlier post, where everyone was saying the only reason Amador student learn math is because they have to go to tutors after school?

Does this mean Pleasanton has nationally ranked tutoring services?

You’re missing the point, which is that Livermore Parent has a gripe about the Livermore superintendent. She should get a weekly column here on the Livermore—I mean Pleasanton—Weekly, so she can repeat the same complaint week after week, month after month, year after year. Maybe James Michael Austin can chime in from time to time and call people snowflakes and Kathleen R. can chip in the occasional guest column about how one day she’ll support our schools, just not today. I mean, these three each contribute more copy to this site than any journalist, despite the fact that their individual messages are always the same. Always.
Always.
The.
Same.

I support our schools all the time. Supported last three bonds. Showed up and proved the need for an elementary school in the current bond. So how is that “always””the”’same”? The facts must be bothersome for you idee.

And the schools are still doing fine. With or without bonds and parcel taxes. Sometimes that needs to be said. Happy Thanksgiving.

I support PUSD schools with my time and with my money and I support the boasters who give their time and support. I do not support this current PUSD board, I am actively recruiting new candidates to run for the PUSD board. I have never had children in PUSD schools.
