The inside story behind challenging, critical issues in California’s public education began airing statewide earlier this year when PBS stations throughout the Golden State premiered Inside California Education. A recent featured program highlights Lincoln Elementary School in Sanger, where an exceptionally high number of special education students mix with the general education population – participating in everything from cheerleading to academics. Keep your eyes peeled because we’ll continue to share different segments in coming issues of the CTA Insider.
… here’s a refresher on what it’s all about: CTA conducted extensive research and acquired input from thousands of educators to hone in on the most important topics that affect teaching and learning. The result was The Public Education All California Students Deserve, a document that outlines proven education strategies that improve and enhance student learning, are essential to providing a quality public education to all of California’s 9 million students, build stronger local communities, and help maintain public education as the cornerstone of our democratic society. Check it out – it’s yours to use and share!
The American Red Cross office in Santa Rosa has established a small team of volunteers to replace specific items lost by school students whose schools or homes have been damaged or destroyed. They are accepting musical instruments for the students for classes or orchestras throughout Sonoma County. The team is working with Santa Rosa City Schools as well as the Sonoma County Office of Education.
