Chula Vista School District Failed To Accommodate Learning Disabilities

Next spring, kindergarten through 12th-grade students across California will be tested to see if they meet new Common Core standards, and many districts will also continue testing for their own local standards.

Last spring, Chula Vista Elementary School District gave two big tests to its students, and they might have violated state mandates to make testing modifications for students with disabilities.

Testing dominates the school year now. Students like fourth grader Abby Eten feel the stress. Abby said she feels like a rubber band.

“If I keep on stretching it and stretching it, it’s going to break,” she said.

Abby has more challenges than other fourth graders: She’s dyslexic. Abby’s mother, Justina Eten, said she’s always surprised by how smart her daughter is.

Labor Day Jobs Report Has Good and Bad News for California and San Diego

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The annual Labor Day report on jobs and the economy from the nonpartisan California Budget Project has some good and bad news on the state of jobs in California.

Some good economic news is that California has some of its lost jobs back.

Luke Reidenbach author of the report said, “The state has regained a number of jobs that were lost in the recession.” He said, “Between July 2007 and February 2010 the state lost a little over 1.3 million jobs and since then the state has regained a similar number of jobs.”

But those jobs don’t pay as much. According to the report middle and low-income workers earn less today than in 1979, when adjusted for inflation. And the number of low wageworkers has grown. Meanwhile top earners take in 17 percent more.
