Sunday Commentary: AIM Proposal Will Fall Short of Consensus

Early this week the word started to emerge that the superintendent had put together an AIM proposal capable of garnering a 5-0 vote. It has been my hope for some time that a 5-0 would be able to put this issue to rest. The fact is that while supporters of the current AIM program...

Property Values and Quality of Education Will Decrease If School Board Has Their Way

by Alicia Sullivan My husband and I work at a pharmaceutical company in Vacaville. When our family decided to leave the city of Vacaville and purchase a home in Davis, it certainly wasn’t because Davis is more affordable or closer to work.
