DId you move to Pleasanton for the good schools?

Original post made by Nicki, Jensen Tract, on Nov 19, 2020

If among your factors for choosing to move to Pleasanton included the very good, highly rated schools here, you may have to endure future "buyers remorse",
since we are held hostage to the rules of Alameda County, which, obviously have very different, more variable, quality of schools, .....(among other differences.) The public schools MAY not open in January, as previously said, because of the new shutdown tier rules. However, private schools already open are immune to that degree, as I understand it (correct if I am wrong). So, our public schools kids are being given at least a somewhat inferior education, in spite a of all the hard work many of our teachers and parents are doing to provide a high standard of education..Have a look at what the private schools in the area are able to do:

So all you parents who thought you had chosen Pleasanton, at least in part, on the high standard of schools here, hopefully you can afford your home, AND PRIVATE SCHOOLS.

Maybe if our kids weren’t packed in like sardines in the overcrowded classrooms the PUSD could make plans on bringing the kids back to their schools, for now we will stand back and watch the PUSD fritter away our measure I1 monies and not build that new school that was promised to us taxpayers.
I for one care more about the safety of our kids, teachers and support staff versus “stacking and packing” them in those classrooms!!
