The last big decision SBUSD made regarding Math was to dismantle the Mastery Math program, the one program I can look back on and say helped me excel as a young student. That program allowed each student to go as far as possible within the world of math and created and environment where children wanted to suceed.
Now the Board is further centralizing math classes and forcing teachers to teach several classes in one. What happens when half the students don't understand Algebra and it's time to learn Geometry? Do you move onto Geometry? Half the class either has to wait or leave the others behind.
How does this solve anything? Please stop trying to place everyone in a cookie cutter environment and dont use the state as an excuse for doing so.

This kind of blatant partisanship and right/wrong blame game is the Grinch that really got us into trouble, not Republicans or Democrats.

Relax. SB Foundation is one of the most legit non-profits we have in SB and I am glad they are around.

East Beach: Can you explain how it's possible for a precinct to be gerrymandered in a City Council race?
The only way for an individual precinct to be gerrymandered is when it borders another political district (such as congressional district borders) where it becomes more than just a precinct. In an at large Council race that is impossible as the outside precinct border is the city limit, which is not something that changes and has no adjacent district with which to gerrymander. If SB ever went to district elections, the lines would be re-drawn with new precincts and only then would there be a possibility of gerrymandering an SB city precinct.

Another vote against Mr. Flacks' misleading comments toward Hotchkiss. Its one thing to disagree with policies, its another to incorrectly label someone a Tea Partier, and its an outright lie to say he was Chair of the local GOP. Bring some facts to the table, not partisan rhetoric that rings false and discredits your other statements.

Exactly what I was wondering. Why would you take the trouble to work your way onto the freeway at Carp Ave only to take the very next exit and bail? Maybe the thought was to lose the cops by swerving onto the fwy instead of taking a straight shot down Carp Ave, but if you know the area decently as it seems they may, why not go left into the neighborhood instead? Whatever they did seemed to have worked.

I dont understand the controversy. To play free tennis in SB, all one needs to do is go to any of the high schools, which actually have pretty decent courts. Ive played at Las Positas before but not recently; It sounds like this would be more like a low cost athletic club that would lie between the high school and tennis club experience.
