Gunn Oracle Rejects Teacher Advisor System
Original post made by Listen to the children on Nov 5, 2012
"Adoption of a Teacher Advisory system is not what The Oracle staff had in mind when the consultant survey showed a satisfaction discrepancy in guidance service quality compared to Paly. Instead, the emphasis lies in revamping both systems accordingly, and providing comparable services not necessarily by exchanging 'best' practices, but by defining a metric that both schools will reach."
If Gunn students don't want TA, why has Ken Dauber made "TA at Gunn" one of his key campaign platforms?

The real question is - what do the Parents Want?
PAUSD and its teachers are vendors of services-Palo Alto parents are the customers/clients-we homeowners and property owners pay the money.
Therefore it should be our choice-the taxpaying Palo Alto parents.
Public school districts are unaccountable bureaucracies-bloated-with too much overhead and corrupt unions
Time for a real change towards accountability for teachers and school districts

The students may say they don't want TAs, but they probably need them. They are still immature enough not to know what they need, as opposed to want they want.
There is obviously something wrong with their counseling system, and a change is called for. If it isn't TAs, it must be something equally as effective.

That's wonderful! When the children of Dauber's WCDBPA say vote for him it's all we should listen to our children. When students at Gunn say what they want it's all they're too immature and don't know what they are talking about.
