iPads are great for porn and video games

I am trying to remain objective with the new Board coming in, but Chris Shilling's example of his two daughters is a prime example of the SUHSD philosophy of "College Prep" for everyone and "Compact for Success". While the programs work for some of our kids, the strict A through G requirements do not work for others. Without the skills based and society based classes and activities our kids get shortchanged into information robots rather than well rounded individuals. Not afforded the opportunity to explore careers or other choices. How sad is it that many kids haven't seen beyond their neighborhoods or the boring facts in the books rather than how these facts and actions of them created the world we live in. No offense meant to the individual teachers or even adminstrators, but the overall method and measure of outcomes need to be reviewed, beyond numbers and college enrollment. Once again "One Size fits all..." is proven to not work as intended. "The Law of unentended outcomes" and "Murhpy's Law" continue to be proven by the lack of realization that "A wise man knows what he does not know" (and thus asks for help, and better asks for help outside his chosen circle). We need a district and Superintendant that is a work in progress, one with the ability to realize they do not know everything, one without previous political attachments and owe noone but the taxpayers and students their loyalty.
