“There’s no harm in hoping for the best ... as long as you’re prepared for the worst.” –Stephen King
"In hindsight, 3 years ago it should have been 30:1 in every classroom. We should have cut sports and music to right this ship, but we didn't do that for all the right reasons. Although, now it’s coming back to bite us. Many, many factors through the course of April through May came into play. Some of it internally inflicted – the misprojection of class size reduction, which has nothing to do with the structural deficit. We were hoping we could hold this off as long as possible and that didn’t work. We knew this day was coming, but we were hoping to soften the scope of it but many, many things happened to get us here much faster."
--Mark Campbell, Superintendent Calaveras Unified
