Message to the BOE:
1. Choice is good
2. Choice, if feasible within PAUSD, is preferable to charter
3. MI is good
4. MI/Ohlone offers win-win
4. If MI comes to Ohlone this year, I want an MI classroom for my child

I beg to differ - charter is preferable to an MI choice program. MI is too expensive and complex, too consuming of district staff resources, too risky, and not an program that can be offered in a diverse and equitable way. Barriers to entry will render the program infeasible.
Charter and Choice program are equal in their burden on space to PAUSD.
Have a backbone and fight both.
But if we're going to be strapped with one or the other, let the charter proponents keep their own headaches.
Let Ohlone get on with Ohlone, save them from themselves. Let PAUSD get on with PAUSD priorities, and let the charter folks have at it. They've worked so hard - they deserve it! (Poetic Justice)
