    OK, so only 10 kids per class at LRHS. How many kids in those same classes at the "thriving" GHS program?Once again the GOB's of Galt show their obvious favoritism.

    I agree with Pat about it being a dumb decision to have 2 High Schools. But, I think they should have only 1 campus. The new school should have been built large enough to accomodate all students. It could still be done. A city of 22,000 people, with outlying areas adding only 1 or 2 classrooms each, isn't big enough for 2 schools. Just think of how many millions we could save on duplicate administrative salaries. We should have gone for D1.

    Press: I grew up in Woodbridge...I grew up under that same attitude...not all of the people were like that though. As for Jennifer, I should say that even if she had asked the question, it wouldn't have been answered. I do think she tries.

    Pat, do you ever see anything but cream puff articles in the Sentinel? Or Galt stories without a sarcastic, Lodi's better than thou attitude? I hear they may have to build armed guard towers around those gated communities soon. LOL

    The second question that was not asked by Jennifer was: What courses will be at Liberty? The answer: Ag That has been their plan all along. What else would you do with an $8M Taj Mahal?

    Once again the kids get hurt by the incompetence and ignorance of decisions made by people who don't really care. As I said and the community said before, GHS should have remained one school not two. I proposed Plan F which is what people voted for by a 6 to 1 margin in the district wide survey. Plan F: One school, two campuses, 9-10 at Liberty and 11-12 at GHS. All of the programs would be offered to the kids, the clout of the district would not be compromised and more programs would be offered and everyone would get to atten the new campus. Lodi did it for nearly 20 years and it worked well. I will be posting this proposal here in it's entirety later.It is not too late.
