Congratulations to the students and parents of the 2013 graduating class! You are lucky to get out now. Who knows where this district will be soon?
Let's recap the 2012-2013 school year: Millions were spent on a new stadium (making national news) while furlough days and layoffs still plagued the district; quality administrators with proven records were dismissed even after community outrage; the citizenship policy was watered down to help recruitment and retention of athletes; a pool at Enochs will be built while other schools crumble and decay; and a school board trustee has pending felony charges.
Let's hope summer vacation leads to a better 2013-2014 school year. As a former Modesto City Schools parent, I'm sure glad my kids got out when they did. As a taxpayer and voter, I'm sickened.
