A new “positive news” page on the Vallejo City Unified School District website was the direct result of a Times-Herald letter to the editor, and the author couldn’t be more pleased.
The VCUSD Journal was born in response to a letter from community activist Paula McConnell, according to a letter that school district superintendent Adam Clark sent out several months ago.
“Dear All,” the letter reads, “Today, the Vallejo Times Herald published a letter to the editor by Paula McConnell. In this letter she wrote ‘…Vallejo schools have devolved into chaos, specifically at the middle and high school levels. They have suffered so badly that it will be a long time before they can be resurrected to some semblance of decency. Many families refuse to put their children into these unsafe havens of destruction and deterioration.’
