This is very helpful to those of us who are trying to get involved and who are feeling out this issue. Thanks for posting this, it provokes alot of thought and activism believe it or not.
Clearly anyone with college educated parents has an advantage, in any case, any ethnicity. And parents that are financially stable too!? Well, I hope you're going to Harvard at that point! 3 of my 4 children are from my ex, who is Hispanic. He grew up in a Spanish speaking *only* household. His elem. school offered an English tutor that studied with him at home and he did extremely well. Honors all the way through. This is the early 80's of course. It was a very low income area and school with probably…
Wow, checking all my news spots this morning and find this. Thank you so much for posting this.
Cheri, First, thank you for all of this info. I will email you to set up a lunch. It may take a minute or two as I have literally just started unpacking into our new house in Pacifica. There is obviously much more to this issue that I need to understand. Off the top of my head it seems like some major grassroots action is needed (door to door, parent to parent, a massive canvassing campaign). I'm going to look up the #17 bus, I am assuming this is in HMB. Need to get familiar with the options here…
This is interesting and irritating.
Buses = less traffic = less of a need for these roads. Hmm. Backwards. Anyone out there with an argument in favor of ?
Guess I need to figure out how to bring this agenda to the table with the district or city council. If anyone reading knows of any groups pushing for school transportation, please share. This article has just lit a fire within.. can't sit back on this one. Thanks, Barry.
New to Pacifica but baffled at the school bus situation. With 3 of my kids in 3 different schools , one car due to the recession mind you, this is troublesome. The amount of driving in the morning will be incredible not to mention the scheduling hassles, gas, etc. that will go on. I am one family. I wonder how many others are out there with this headache. I'm curious after reading Barry Parr's comment above, what the argument was for getting rid of buses. I would LOVE any info about that decision..
