Re Green Dot: Before becoming a charter, 4% of the algebra students at Locke High School tested at the "basic" level. Now 12% test there. Results in other subjects weren't much better.

It's time to give everyone a choice instead of college prep for all. Bring back general education classes, business classes, homemaking classes and vocational classes.

Everyone has different abilities and interests. One size doesn't fit all.
