    WILLIAM DAWES, I totally agree. Amazing how LUSD has money to burn for projects like this. Meanwhile, existing schools need serious repairs and renovations in order to last into the future. Government entities, at all levels, seem to be concentrating on "feel good" projects instead of projects that maintain infrastructure and necessary programs.

    Another total waste of LUSD. And it won't even be close to $37 million if it gets competed.

    We would be better off building an electron microscopy academy, as this would help with medical research and development, and also forensics. They way Stockton-Lodi is going, it will need both.
