Maybe a commuter bus for seniors three times a day. But no. They acted like big shots and told the public this is the way it’s going to be. This is poor public relations.
The next time we do it right or we recall the whole City Council.
Try starting fundraisers instead of cutting staff
Regarding the Jan. 15 article “Educators brace for losses,” if Burbank Unified is anticipating losing $3 million annually, why aren’t teachers, school administrators and school board members working harder to cut budgets or find funding?
It’s hard enough that they must work to meet state standards, but it is proven that poverty-stricken cities have poorer test results. Will lower budgets and fewer resources reduce the scores of state-mandated tests?
I propose that schools start fundraisers and events to promote boosts in funding. Cutting budgets, reducing class sizes and firing teachers will only make the quality of education decrease exponentially.
How does policy’s removal help morale?
It looks like the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy of the military is about to end.
The policy apparently does not permit “openly” gay or bisexual behavior, so the elimination of the policy would seem to encourage members of the military to be open about their sexuality, including their heterosexuality.
I don’t quite follow how this would be good for the morale and discipline required in a military group.
Please help me understand.
