I hope that the school board will take a hard look at the best location for the new elementary school. Please work with the city's Housing Element. This shows that much of the growth is intended in the El Camino/Ventura corridor.
Please take a hard look at preventing elementary students from having to cross major streets such as El Camino or San Antonio Rd. New boundaries may be in order even though there will be a lot of push back from parents. Please make a decision that is best for the city traffic issues and the safety of the students.

So today San Jose police announced that beginning salaries for police officers, which require no college degree, are $80,000. If we paid our teachers more and had more and better teachers, we'd need fewer police. It's sad that our society has so little regard for the importance of good teachers. The best and brightest students continue to glut law and business schools.

It's not merely the influence of good teachers; it is overwhelmingly the example of parents. For the most part kids emulate their parents in many, many way. If the parents read, they read, et cetera. That cannot be ignored or overemphasized.
