Letter From Wolfgang Schaechter

Once again, Carolyn Schuk made a complex issue easy to understand.  Her reporting of the RDA “clawback” attempts by various agencies seem to have city against county against state all trying to maximize their respective finances at the expense of the other parties.  Schuk’s reporting of the status  and turmoil in the board meetings of Santa Clara Unified School District [SCUSD] also provided insight into an apparently difficult situation.  One piece of good news is the national recognition achieved by Milliken Elementary – an issue during the SCUSD election where Dr. Michele Ryan was criticized for promoting that school’s approach. Looks like having a few more Millikens might be good for the SCUSD.
