We need to take local control of our own schools. My children went to Chaparral, El Roble and CHS. This bond will help us keep local control of our own schools. Let's support our own schools and support Measure CL. There is a need, so let's do it.

No, the budget cuts have not taken nearly as much of a toll on school funding as salaries and benefits for teachers and other state workers.
Abolish unions and privatize the education system, and watch achievement soar!!!

I also support the bond. My children both attend Claremont schools and I shudder to think of a privatized educational system where only the affluent have choice. As a Claremont taxpayer, the few thousand dollars on my property bill is more than offset by my houses's value. I am at a loss to explain those im my community who trust the schools with their children's education every single day, yet do not seem to trust the same people to be responsible with the bond money.

The states with the lowest unionization rates have the lowest test scores. That is a fact.

I have grandchildren who have been educated through the Claremont Public School system, and I marvel every day at the quality of education they received in that system.

Just read your link and I stand by my comment. Reread the last paragraph of the article you site. Nothing is clear clear cut in life, but what I wrote is true.

No, the article indicates that a few states were cherry-picked for the study and the "results" were interpreted by union folk.

I have two properties in Claremont and am willing to pay more right now to keep my property values up. The value of the homes in Claremont are about 30% more than surrounding areas due to the schools. We need to keep that in mind and support Measure CL.
