The recent implementation of LCFF and Common Core is a landmark and a call for all school board members and friends of education to stand up and mold the way schools are funded and how curriculum is delivered to those children of color, to not be status quo and continue to do the same thing we have done for 40 years, and expect different results.
At this year’s CSBA conference our guest speaker will be Patricia Rucker from the State Department of education, she will give us first hand information on LCFF and Common Core. This is your time to ask questions and be heard, so please plan to attend the CCBSBM luncheon on Monday December 15th 2014. This is also your opportunity to update your membership dues in order to vote.
