Changes needed to benefit students

There are three basic steps, that if taken, will give every Fallbrook student an exponentially better chance at success.

1) The unification of our school districts.

Every year we waste millions of dollars on having three separate superintendents, district offices, maintenance, transportation, and payroll departments etc. We waste time and resources by failing to have one comprehensive educational plan for our students.

2) Limits on out-of-state conferences.

Last year the elementary district sent administrators to five star resorts in places such as: Washington DC; Baltimore, Md.; Raleigh, N.C.; Kansas City, Mo.; Las Vegas, Nev.; and Key West, Fla. They eat premium meals with funds that are supposed to go to students. They cut educational programs, then hop on a plane to Key West. This board is out of touch; as a community we need to put a stop to this reckless spending of our tax dollars.

3) Invest in our students.

We can take the money saved on the above two steps and put it where it belongs. We can invest the money in programs that will help the students of today achieve unprecedented levels of success in the future. Advanced science classes, engineering, robotics, technology, music, art, language, drafting, and shop classes.

We can either accept the status quo or we can raise our expectations and hold the board accountable. We can give our students every opportunity to compete and elevate Fallbrook schools into an example of success in education.
