My obvious question is why? What makes the school board so enticing that the director of the Stockton Boys and Girls club was on the board? And gave him enough motivation to pay for a re-count?
I think the major story here is how everyone is in it for themselves, instead of making the best choices for a school. Oh wait, schools are meant for education? I was unaware of that.
This education battle has got to stop. Amato, Bill Ross, Dan Castillo, Sal Ramirez, Jose Morales, Colleen Boardman, Beverly Fitch McCarthy and Gloria Allen, please do listen. Racist or not, muck raking or not, constant in-fighting or not, I think race is the least of the issues. I think the biggest issue is that the school board and Super are rapists.
Yes, I just said you all have decided to take the well being and education of the local children and destroy their hopes and dreams Deliverance style.
Especially now, Mexican, white, black, asian, Punjabi, there are bigger issues to take into account. If special election budget issues don't get passed, there is a possibility you will have to lay off more teachers, more janitors and more support staff. Of course, as people lose their jobs, its nice for them to know that the Super is still driving an $80k car. Because while everyone is tightening belts, Stockton overall has no clue how to do it.
You pull the race card when you have nothing to stand on. If you represent the districts you stand for, you will realize Stockton is one of the most diverse cities around. If you want it, Stockton's got it. And even though Don Blount believes that Stockton is littered with KKK activists, its not.
What should be on school board agenda: improve education for students, pay teachers, offer and create programs that enhance students education.
What is on the school boards agenda: $650 a month SUV, racism, and an incompetent board president.
Look, when you don't do your job, the public has a tendency to let you know. Yes, even Stocktonians managed to realize the last board was full of shit and got rid of people, so using this as a chance to jump up and further whatever the hell you are doing might not work too well.
Look rapists, put the kids first. As your sitting there, making a decision, sit there and think, how does this benefit the kids? If you cant think of how, then drop it and move on.
