Those who'd like to see some local control over our schools may want to support AB 2307, an Assembly bill to empower local school districts to opt out of Common Core and its assessments.

Keep in mind that Bill Gates was diagnosed as autistic ( high functioning) as a child. It was only,his wealthy parents' money that saved him.

I know this because I have a close friend who has an autistic son, and subscribes to a bi-monthly publication on autism. Bill Gates wrote an article for this publication in which he detailed his experiences as an autistic child.
