So the Teacher’s Union (the most powerful liberal Democrat voting block) wants to talk AGAIN about salaries and contract negotiations? Is your voting choice for President not working out for you? Your household costs are rising? Teachers were able to work for a year and a half in their pajamas from the comfort of their living room where the students learning curve went down. If anything, there should be a refund to parents that didn’t receive the level of teaching they expected.

Class size? How does that work? Where are you going to place the overflow?

“Some measurable outcomes listed in the plan are reducing the percentage of initial special education assessments conducted for Hispanic/Latinx students, reducing overall chronic absenteeism rates and reducing overall suspension rate in those marginalized communities by 2024.” - I guess Pleasanton will have to establish their first Title 1 school. The hole in the southern boarder comes to our little town.

Isn’t giving teachers money instead of benefits how Pleasanton got into the situation where teachers are supposedly underpaid?

In the private sector, in most cases you don’t get money if you don’t take the benefits offered.

PUSD should not give teachers cash if benefits are declined.

Instead, pay teachers competitive salaries and leave money for benefits out of the equation.
