If you vote Yes on Measure G:
Two Staff Development Days are removed from the school calendar. Leaving only one.
Staff Development Days are used by teachers to learn, prepare, collaborate, maintain best teaching practices, participate in academic department meetings, catch up on grading, mentor younger teachers, integrate new curriculum into the lesson plans, upgrade lesson plans, organize the classroom, and more.
This means a 66% reduction in teacher preparedness and investment in the teaching profession.
Every teacher will be less prepared, less trained, and less ready than last year.
Every Pleasanton school will be hurt. Every academic department will be hurt. Every Pleasanton classroom will be hurt.
Every child will be hurt.
Go ahead. Vote Yes on Measure G. Destroy Pleasanton Schools.
And thank your Association (union) of Pleasanton Teachers and the 70% of the teachers who voted for it.
