Shouldn't this read poorest performing students and parents? Education starts at home we connot expect teachers and administrators to teach underachieving students that do not care or cannot understand english. put the blame where it belongs.

I am all for getting rid of Gil Navarro 500 percent.It is because of him and all of his (beloved) ILLEGAL ALIEN'S test scores are so low and these prncipals are forced to retire.How can you teach children who can't or wont speak ENGLISH, who feel they don't have to follow the rules(example set by ILLEGAL ALIEN PARENTS WHO ARE NOT IMMIGRANTS THEY ARE CRIMINALS)and then you want to blame the schools. Put the blame where it belongs on the students and their parents and their supporters like Gil ( AMERICAN TRATIOR) Navarro. Vote out Navarro this election.

It's not as if there is a cadre of "principals/teachers-in-r eserve" just waiting for the call to service to spring into action and lift a school's performance on tests. Even if there were, why would they sign up to that particular duty under the present circumstances?

To use a twist on an old statistics buzz-phrase, quality-in, quality out. When children start kindergarten knowing their alphabets and numbers, understanding phonics, recognizing site words, etc., they tend to be on grade level or higher as it regards reading, but student who do not have that background are below grade level and have a difficult time catching up.

As commenters before me have noted, what matters the most is the education orientation at home. I cannot understand how Karen Craig can go from being an outstanding, highly regarded principal at San Bernardino High who was hand-picked to open Arroyo Valley High to a failed principal. What changed?

Everybody here is spot on! It's the demographic not the teachers.Illegals are sinking California education system like the titanic.Another example of the Mexicans turning the U.S. into a third world country slowly but surly.Driving down wages and destroying the educations system. Not too mention flooding the streets with drugs and domestic terrorists.Immigration reform before its too late please Mr. Government!

Please, please, PLEASE vote Gil Navarro out. For a supervisor to turn on his own like that is unconscionable! His 2-dimensional, data-only look at deeply complex situations is proof that he is the worst type of politician, making bold statements during an election year, posturing himself on the necks of those under HIS supervision.

Also, be very wary of Gloria Romero. She speaks out of both sides of her mouth, saying she doesn't think teachers should be punished, but voting in favor of SB955, a bill aimed at stripping teachers of their hard-earned rights. No to Gil, No to Gloria, and NO to SB955. What is this society coming to?

Davidson Elementary was fine until Payne came in... She FAILED at Ingrahm, and instead of firing her, they moved her to Davidson when Jerry Kasinski retired... Way to go affirmative action...

Then the dumbasses go and hire Texabel Acosta to be in charge of Pacific High School. Disgusting! Delgado is a moron! Acosta will finish sinking that school. Nobody, but nobody wants that man as their Principal. But on the bright side, he will have lots of authority to delegate and spend more of his precious time selling real estate and used cars. Ya can't have enough money, can you Tex?

YOU REALLY GOT A PROBLEM! YOU NEED HELP! YOU KNOW THAT IMMIGRANTS HARVEST YOUR FOOD EVERYDAY AND THEY WORK FOR LESS THAN MINIMUM WAGE! WOULD YOU DO THAT, GO OUT IN THE BURNING SUN AND WORK FOR MORE THAN 12 HRS EARNING LESS THAN MINIMUM WAGE? I DONT THINK SO, SO SHUT YOUR MOUTH AND STOP BEING RACIST. WHITE PEOPLE ARE ALL THIEVES ALL THE LAND THEY HAVE WAS STOLEN FROM VARIOUS COUNTRIES. WHITE PEOPLE SHOULD LEAVE THE WEST IF THEY DON'T LIKE IMMIGRANTS BECAUSE THEY'RE HERE TO STAY. DID YOU KNOW YOUR ANCESTORS WERE IMMIGRANTS ALSO FROM EUROPE. LIKE FROM FRANCE, ITALY, EVEN THE BRITISH WERE IMMIGRANTS. THE ONLY NATIVES ARE THE INDIANS.

Ever hear or read about manifest destiny? You're right that the US did steal or buy this country from others. The US has already developed infrastrucute and endured thru their industrial revolution to become one. Borders were established and a country was built for everyone. Everyone that is here legally. But look, every other world power did the same. Mexico has it's own borders, why not educate and rebuild Mexico? Mexico is so rich in history from Mayan civilization to Spanish colonial rule. Why not embrace that and build off of it? Sounds like a revolution by mexicans are coming and a race war will be started in this country. It's gonna suck to be of Latin heritage. And about the picking produce and fruits thing..... Believe it, when people get hungry, they will pick their own. America was not founded and built on idiots.

Maybe you and those you know are hard-working and honest (including legally documented). Have you researched test scores, crime rates, out-of-wedlock/teen pregnancy rates, gang affiliation, high school graduation rates, English language acquisition rates? They go hand-in-hand and are frequent common denominators of areas highly populated by poorly educated residents of Latino descent.

No one cares any more, at least not those that can do anything about it. It is up to the California system (which is broke) to raise these kids. To expect someone to follow the rules is passť. Especially since our leaders need votes, and so many legal voters are tied into illegal immigrants. Our success caused a weakness in the system and they took advantage of it. No one stepped up until the economy went bad and then there were too many. If we are in decline as many say, the leeches may run to another country, and they may be us.

Welp, IDK who you are but you sure were right about Tinkerbell Acosta. No one wants him as their principal but mor important, NO PARENT wants him sexually assaulting their daughters. He's got a new game in town.
