All teachers deserve at least one classroom aide. Higher property values create higher propertyRead More taxes, the sole source of revenue for the public schools. Too bad that our sh/city hall refuses to pass a view protection ordinance so that the supply of "view homes" is forever on the decline. A hillside home with unblocked view will sell for seven figures; wipe out the view, then the price will be about $350K less, creating an annual loss to the school district of about $4,000 annually.

The view protection ordinance I suggest would apply only to non-native trees and non-nativeRead More vegetation. (ask any biologist what are the benefits from transporting various species, of anything, all over the planet)

Um, maybe we should ask Jerry Brown where the school monies went that were the selling point for theRead More State lottery. I would also like to see our views protected and getting back to indigenous plants in open areas, flush out these eucalyptus and gum trees from Australia. They are a nuisance in multiple ways. Besides obstructing view the falling leaves taint the soils with tannins that stop the growth of anything else.

"Global engagement" is all well and good, but for an annual $25,800 tuitionRead More (http://www.pacificridge.org/podium/default.aspx?t=118981), how many Pacific Ridge School graduates go on to top 25 colleges / universities (http://colleges.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-colleges/rankings/national-universities)?

If the Taiwan people motivate our kids to excel in math and science, it won't matter much inRead More California, assuming that the ultimate goal of education is to create a job for yourself, plus at least a few more people. Sacramento's hateful attitude towards entrepreneurship/private enterprise would have driven Einstein to other places besides the California of Today. But it must be stated that back in Einstein's day, California was very pro-business. Liberals call this "progress."

I think the "Motion" program is wonderful. I've seen it in action....every student, andRead More some teachers, participate. It's so vital to have an awareness of the importance of fitness.

I love the promotion and support of science….would be great if one of these kids inventedRead More something new and wonderful that results in more manufacturing and more American jobs. Unfortunately, our state government has created an anti-business climate, so our genius kids will probably move to Arizona, as did Apple Computer recently for the production of their desktop computers.

Hi! We are moving from New Jersey to Carlsbad, and our son will be starting Kindergarten thisRead More coming school year. We were not planning on moving until April, however I have heard that the Carlsbad kindergarten programs will fill up. Is this true? If so, I will be sure to get our new home aligned in the next few days so I can have our new address to enroll our son in school. Any thoughts/advice on this and how it all works? Thanks great for any help!

Thank you so much for your help! I will definitely do that.

on those previous ballots, did she reveal that her occupation is "attorney?" also,Read More because $4,000 is very light, I would have preferred to seen this go to trial; preferably, TWO trials.

No need to wait for "state revenues to increase." Carlsbad City Council can createRead More school revenue overnight simply by bringing back valuable, enjoyable, and taxable ocean views to this hilly seaside town. The way to do this is to enact a view protection ordinance, as they have done in Malibu, Del Mar, Pacific Palisades, and other first-class cities.. Applicable only to non-native trees, at least for now. When the envied family at the top of the hill get an extra $350K for the view when they sell, it will positively impact the values in the entire area, even for the people down the hill. Most veteran Carlsbad cops know many stories and addresses where friction between neighbors often results in one of them eliminating/obstructing the other's view.
