      Teachers took a pay cut when they agreed to support the struggling district and delay their raises for three years. They took another cut with first a three day then a five day furlough.

      CA teachers have the highest average salaries in the nation, outside of D.C. And we have the strongest teachers' unions. San Diego could solve its school budget problems by cutting teacher pay by 10 - 20 percent, leaving them still in the upper half nationwide.

      Could state over sight result in better schools and students who leave the system more prepared for work or further education? I hope it will.

      "Grossly incompetent management by the board and Superintendent" would be more accurate.
