Today we received a message from Jenny Reik, a CUES committee member. CUES has a statement related to the recent events:
CUES Committee statement
August 3, 2010
MDUSD Community -
For the past several weeks, there has been wide speculation and much misinformation regarding the handling of the opinion poll we commissioned prior to the Measure C election. This matter has become a needless distraction and is inhibiting the progress that the voters demanded with their overwhelming approval of Measure C. As such, our committee is compelled to release the poll so we can put this matter to rest. The full report of it can be found on our site: www.protectourlocalschools.org
The election is over and the voters have spoken. We urge the Times and the District leadership to get beyond this trivial matter and focus their attention and energy on the key issue: how can we best use our resources to improve our children’s education?
The success of Measure C is proof that the community remains steadfast in support of our kids. The CUES committee will continue its work to build on that success and construct stronger, more productive channels of communication between the District and the community at large. We welcome all parents and members of our community to join us in that effort. Please visit www.protectourlocalschools.org to learn more.
