We have to make people aware that our State is run by public employee Unions and we need court casesRead More like today which ruled that the California Teacher Tenure rules are unconstitutional so that we can change laws and vote people out of office who do not represent the interests of the public who pay the taxes.

Something that is interesting to note is that high school grads are going to four year universitiesRead More and studying subject that isn't marketable. While on the other hand you have people getting vocational training at vocational schools that essentially guarantees them a job out of school that will make them 'x' amount of money. So it isn't that college degrees are worthless, some are. It is also said that sometimes trade school is the right choice!

Makes sense. As long as we keep eroding and buffering the standards , our Politicians and SchoolRead More Boards will one day have a 100% Graduation Certificate to hang on their "I Love Me" walls!! Truth is , we as a nation spend more money per student than any other Nation in the world on primary education only to have our "graduates" rank 14th in the world......right behind Iceland.So before we run around the building and shake hands with ourselves, maybe we should take a moment to ponder some new innovations in education and stop throwing money into an endless pit!

JSanders... why don't you explain what you think "Destined for Greatness" means to you? IfRead More you have watched the news and seen the interviews with many of his fellow students and coaches, it seems as though this young man had an upbeat and inspiring personality that affected those around him in a positive way. In my book that is greatness. To be a person who brings out the best in others is truly rare. I imagine my definition of greatness is likely different than yours, simply because there is not much that I have ever agreed with you when I see your postings on this site. The negative comments that I read sadden me, and even more so the number of recommendations following those comments. It says a lot about the negativity either of this community or the followers on this website. Pearson Lyverse gave a personal perspective which I certainly appreciated, why do you need to refer to it as a "rant." It is simply disrespectful. The REAL topic here is a life lost too soon.

"He was destined for greatness" is a quote from one of the people posting online about hisRead More death. scroll through the Storify curation and you will see what I am referring to.

I would still like to hear JSanders definition of "Greatness." He seems to have the needRead More to diminish the perspective of those who actually knew him.

What is the point of re-running, and re-running, this story about Ted Agu? It has been running asRead More the subject line for the Rockridge Patch since February 7th, with no update about the issue of sports-related deaths of athletes. This is callous and disrespectful to Mr. Agu's memory.
