My name is Greg Robin and I started this petition to show Encinitas taxpayers, parents and stakeholders do not agree with syphoning off $800,000 school funds to pay for Yoga.From the petition site, some ideas for better uses of that money:
It would be great if you could share this- we don't have much time left.
Here are just a couple of ideas:
1. Hire 2 teachers for each school that could lower the class sizes of all of our students.
2. Pay for science, art, music, P.E. teachers (currently parents have to raise money to have science, art, music, and P.E. in our schools -- programs that are part of the core curriculums of other school districts). In fact, some of the schools in our district can't raise enough money and those children are missing out on some of these programs. Then any fundraising done at our schools can be used to pay for programs that are priorities to our families. If yoga is a priority, it could come out of the school's fundraising budget.
EU Note: What's up with Sonima/Jois getting Baird hooked on $800,000 yoga and then suddenly pulling the plug? Bad Karma!
