Why would they lock kids inside a school that could have a bomb inside the school? Shouldn't theyRead More evacuate the kids?

I think the real problem here is the lack of violence and drugs in video games. If we can some how,Read More as a community, express our concern with this we might be able to force a change. The facts of the research are clear, the more violence in video games the less violence on the street.

It doesnt matter if students are athletes, have good parents or live in apartments or dress in KmartRead More jeans. The REAL problem in San Ramon (and elsewhere!) is that ADULTS (yes YOU!) could give two shits about kids on your communities. YOU care ONLY about your child and a few of your child's friends but only because you hang out with their parents! If you all cared about all kids, these negative racist comments would not be on this post! But nope, your all in denial believing your SR school district is going to make those 'other kids' better citizens as you all drink wine and close your eyes to the real lives your spoiled rotten kids are living. My business partners son moved from Oakland to Orindas his junior year- the biggest difference between the two, in his opinion? More and better drugs in Orinda. How's that Chardonnay?!

This story is incorrect. Don't start saying things that you don't even know if it's true. You needRead More to find out both sides of the story. Your making my friend seem like she's a bully when she's not. I know the full story. Your daughter lied to you.

Clearly bullying is happening at more schools than just those in San Ramon. Looks like awareness inRead More all the tri-valley schools will really make a positive impact on our children.

First, let the moms take their sweet little girls to a big party were missy can introduce her shirtsRead More to her pants. Then dads can take Johnny to that same party and have them introduce their pants to their belt(You know the one dad should have used on their butts but was too afraid to do so). If we start there all else will follow.

First it is up to the parents to make sure that they are available for their children during theRead More after school hours. Or that SOMEONE is in the home during those hours so that the children do have study time, meal time, bath time, and alone time. If this means that the children can not participate in the hundreds of after school activities that seem to be considered necessary these days, then oh well. Also teachers seem to be assigning a lot of nonsense homework these days. I wonder what would happen if a parent informed the school at the beginning of the year that unless a child is falling behind in a particular subject, that child will not be doing any homework during the year.

My question: Why is this being taught in schools?! How is this more imperative to the curriculumRead More for our children than learning to read and write? Is this what they replaced cursive handwriting with? I'm still upset that the government removed cursive handwriting from the curriculum. Our children will not learn to read or write cursive (Our Constitution was written in cursive), but it's important for them to experience life in a wheelchair? This looks like a brilliant example of social engineering to me... Yikes...

The article clearly said the wheelchair exercise was in place of a normal physical education period.Read More This has nothing to do with teaching, or eliminating, cursive. Perhaps had the PATCH article been published in a cursive font this would have been understood. And teaching empathy is a bad thing? To quote the person whose opinion differs from mine, "Yikes..."

It's being taught in schools as paul said. Besides, aren't you the same Trish who in the "IsRead More your car safe at Blackhawk Plaza" who wrote : "lack of education and moral code in our teaching curriculum. " Teaching kids empathy sounds like "moral code" in the "teaching curriculum" to me.
