To Monica and justsomegirl you both are some ignorant people who makes it hard for people to understand the needs of others and how important it is to change the life’s of our children’s because they are what the future holds and what is your tax payer money going to if not to this program huh??? Let’s talk about the possibilities of that #1 is buying oil to be transferred from the people who are interested in making the US pay higher rate for their product instead of using our own drilling services to help us with the gasoline market and lower prices. How about putting your money towards all the nonsense that pops up with things like a speedy train that is not the important thing that should be done or what about supporting the war that doesn’t even concern us in the first place or how do u feel about having the money you made go to support those who want to see that everything is based on electric cars and have your money go to the other end of the world to support those who are not clearly our friends and don’t have any problem with trying to make US pay in order to keep some kind of peace. Your money is not going to something better so what is your problem with trying to make a positive change in the life of a student that is not the real enemy πŸ’―

Sure why not? If they don’t give it to another student they will just give it to the illegal coming across the border.

I have no problem with it going to students who perhaps might invest in a Laptop or other educational things. California is suppose to use our tax dollars to keep our roadways in good condition, which is not where our money is going. it is going to wasteful bureaucratic BS and given to business’s that have friends in Sacramento. At least when it goes to students I know where it goes.

My grandson is in the third grade and cannot even read or do simple math! So again what is the school going to do, put him in the fourth grade next year??? Let’s stop abandoning our children in elementary school and focus on that 100%!

This also happen to at least one of my grandchildren they do not Care,they pass them to the next grade regardless if they can’t read or struggling to do regular curriculum! They don’t care about our children’s education.

I’m a parent of 5 & grandparent of 3. I can say I had no hesitancy pulling my kids out of public school.when their school.started failing. 3 of my kids are special ed students with challenging learning differences. I still managed to structure a routine to homeschool them. They have improved greatly since then. You can only blame.bad schools for so long before you become part of the problem for letting it continue. If this child is mostly illiterate at working age, that won’t be a school’s fault. It will be your family’s for not stepping in sooner.

I believe it would better serve the children/teenagers in public schools to teach more basic programs i.e.,
reading, math, history, English and a class to teach them how to apply for a job. Wasting $500 on kids programs is not a necessary item for any county. I believe our local Representatives and State Senators should rethink any monies going to programs that do not enhance their education should not be used for this type of program.

Newsom has already run up California’s debt that can never be fixed, so let the kids have a slice.
