This bill will prevent Teachers from suspending defiant students. Students can be disruptive and refuse to work without consequences. According to this bill, Teachers still can remove disruptive students. However, many Administrators and office staff will send the students back to the classroom. These students will have a very hard time in the world of work as employers will not put up with disrespect and disruptive behavior. It is in the students’ best interest, (especially minority students and students with disabilities) to learn in a structured environment. Also, students should be encouraged to show proper respect to Teachers.
Please write letters to the editors, call your legislators, contact parent groups and go to school board meetings. We absolutely have to stop this. If students can be defiant and disobediant and refuse to follow instruction, they are not learning the life skills they are going to need to work in life.
This is the government open. You see the pace, everything they’re achieving, the feverish pace. Look at all that work going on! You can imagine, we can’t shut that down. NOOO! What will happen?

We missed you at the demonstration to Repeal the Gas Tax at the Fremont DMV on Thursday, September 20. Candidates present are Konstantinos Roditis for Controller, Lisa Romero for State Assembly District 11, and Joseph Grcar for Assembly District 20. Joe is wearing a T-shirt for Rudy Peters for Congress.
... unless, apparently, the hatred is directed at Republicans. We are still waiting for the Castro Valley Democrat Club to apologize for the actions of a relative of their former chair. Meanwhile Rep. Swalwell only says "it is not ok to use violence to settle disagreements", but hatred is not a "disagreement". And still waiting for the Congressman to DISAVOW any hating supporters. Eric, do you disavow?
A man was arrested on suspicion of felony assault and other charges after allegedly attempting to stab Republican congressional candidate Rudy Peters with a switchblade on September 9.

With the new Gas Tax hikes going into effect tomorrow, we are trying to raise awareness this week as to what is happening and why it matters. It's a good opportunity to re-visit an insightful Op-Ed published in the San Francisco Chronicle, written by Bay Area Assemblywoman Catharine Baker, on the matter:
