Re: “Providing the right resources for SFUSD’s black students

The right resources should include such things as regular homework and testing, and enforced classroom discipline.. In other words, treat them like students and forget all this ethnic nonsense: you can carry this ''oppressed'' noise only so far.

Re: “Providing the right resources for SFUSD’s black students

The right resources should start at home. That is the problem with this community, their parents or parent in most cases are not teaching their kids. There is only so much a school can do. Parents need to get involved

Re: “Want to be a teacher? There's plenty of support for SFUSD educators

My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My neighbour's sister has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out.

Re: “Students get a jump on college with FRISCO Day

What a waste of a school day? My daughter has already been accepted and SIR'd to her choice in college. Why does she have to attend this day?

Re: “School-placement letters just the beginning for parents

Parents need to ban together to form their own group to fight against this ridiculous system.

You must be LOUD, VOCAL and obnoxious like every other special interest group in this city to get anything done. If the BOE members fear you in the next election you'll get things done.

Start by campaigning AGAINST Sandra Fewer, Kim-Shree Maufas and Hydra Mendoza.

Re: “School-placement letters just the beginning for parents

Carranza--you're full of *&^%$#. The system sucks. My kid was assigned a east side high school and after asking one of the administrators if they would send their own child there said that they wouldn't. My kid hates school now because he can't attend with his friends.

Re: “School-placement letters just the beginning for parents

LookingoutformySon has it completely right. One of the reasons we left the city. There was no way I was going to send my young children across town in ANY direction. So, we moved to a small foothills town. My kids played soccer and were in the local scouts troops with their classmates. The kids I watched grow up at school are neighbors who feed our cats and pickup our mail when we are away. Don't regret leaving the city at all. Occasional visit for good food and fun a few times a year is enough.

Re: “School-placement letters just the beginning for parents

Sick to our stomach's.

My wife and I were thrilled last year when I received an opportunity to progress my career here in this wonderful city. Little did we realize how this would affect us as a family with regard to the school system. Your unique way of placing students has left us in the 18% minority of those not receiving their requested schools. This now leaves us weighing our options of moving to the East Bay or North Bay to find the right opportunity for our son.

THE LOTTERY SYSTEM IS NOT A FRIENDLY SYSTEM to family's. We have leases to sign for living arrangements and now have to figure out transportation options for our son if we decide to stay in the city. Not to mention the negative impact this has had on our son not being in class with children from the neighborhood. This creates isolation for families trying to make the city a home!

Richard Carranza's message here paints a rosy picture, but if you are on the other side of this fence this is not fun for those with high achieving students trying to get into Lowell or for those of us that just want a good education in or near our neighborhood for our child. It is distracting and causes month's of emotional distress no matter which side of the fence you are on.

!!!!!!!!!!We need a sense of community back, we need our school system to give that to us, we need to get rid of the elitist system that Lowell creates!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: “SFUSD is using a better way to teach math

Has algebra changed since my generation learned it in the late 1950s? I do not mean how it's taught; I mean algebra itself.

Re: “Families are key part of education

Families truly play a vital role in the initial education of their child. They help children understand the purpose of life and how to carry on with it in future while keeping all the aspects of it in to consideration parallel to every other thing.
