Dr. Klentschy gets the whole apple, the new gym and auditorium at Kennedy Middle School (thanks to the parents of Kennedy students) and San Diego and Imperial counties' superintendent award.
I cannot believe how one person can achieve these awards all by himself without the help of the teachers, staff, community and the taxpayers in the El Centro Elementary School District.
The teachers and aides aren't the only ones getting the core or the leftovers. You, the parents and your children, will soon be fighting for a piece of that core or leftovers. Once the core is all gone, the teachers will have to strike. Then what will you, the parents and children, do? Will you send your children to school not knowing how and who will be baby-sitting them or how many will be crammed into one classroom for one person to baby-sit?
How many parents can afford to take time off from their jobs to keep their children home? How many days, weeks can you stand them or miss work? Who will take the time to tutor your child so they can pass the SAT 9 and other district/state tests? What about the money from the state and Gov. Davis for teacher salary increases?
