Sen. Limón Named in Forbes Future of Work 50 List

Thekids: Senator Monique Limon did leave the board but she did not leave our students. She co-sponsored that would have required early screening for K-2 students who show signs of dyslexia. California is one of only 10 states not to screen for dyslexia,. Although it passed the State Senate without a single no vote, It got blocked in assembly by the powerful California Teacher's Union.. which objected the measure would have" required too much time and money at a time when teachers have not enough of either." CTU often votes against helping vulnerable students and block reforms. Recently Senator Limon helped get $200,000. funding for a book van in Isla Vista . for wider library outreach. “Library services are vital resources that serve as community hubs for people to gather, share information, and promote literacy,” This is the first time in 70 years history that Isla Vista has had this resource for all, preschool thru high school. She is also quite accessible and responsive. I think she is making a difference for our struggling students and would succeed if the California Teacher's Union would stop blocking good bills.

Sen. Limón Named in Forbes Future of Work 50 List

I note in the piece on the Fabulous Sen. Monique Limon that that the writer nor Forbes mentioned that Limon bailed out on our Santa Barbara school children half way through her term on the Santa Barbara School District Board, in oder to feather her political nest and run for State Senator.. She follows Laura Capps, who also followed the dump the kids and run for higher office game plan. So much for
"I am running for the school board to help our children". In the meantime, our local public schools are in as worse a shape as they have been in for for years! This is not public servoice-it is self service!!
