Advocates for adult education dominated Wednesday’s Vallejo school board meeting.
For about an hour and a half, more than a dozen older speakers pleaded with the Vallejo Unified School District governing board and Superintendent Ramona Bishop to save senior programs at the Vallejo Adult School.
“As your constituents, we urge you not to cut the older adult classes at the Vallejo Adult School. We want you to know that the classes are critical to us and that we value them. The classes provide education, not recreation, but genuine education specific to the issue of our age group,” Janet Triemert said before presenting a petition signed by 237 people asking the programs be kept.
