What is going on here?
My kids, both now adults in their 20's, had fantastic experiences from K-12 in the PAUSD. They got into good colleges, and both are doing well in the working world. PAUSD education had a great deal to do with that. So I have no axe to grind about the school district from my family perspective.
Still, there appears to be a set of issues when it comes to running a school or the district. The level of turnover is a concern. Stability, consistency, and accountability are crucial. The level or turnover PAUSD faces does not provide such requirements.
I am not an education expert, (although my son now teaches 5th grade,) but I have background in management, and there is something about this that does not seem right. I have not personal dog in the hunt at this point, but the School Board has its hands full figuring this out, and parents with children in the schools need to do the same.
Something is not right.
