  • Did you know that OUSD only made small schools in neighbourhoods that they found poor? After they made 40 small schools in poor neighbourhoods they found out that making small schools didn’t improve test scores

    • Dear Erick, I feel “pleased” about your post one sentence that stood out to me was that Ousd made small schools and they realized that they weren’t getting the highest test scores that they would or wanted. This stood out to me because it shows how schools have changed a lot and they have gotten very big over the years and test scores have gotten up. However, one thing I disagree with was that there were small schools in poor neighborhoods and test scores were very low because what I think its the education that they were getting in that school that is why they were getting so low test scores. Next time you should look at your research deeper and maybe think about the real problem that maybe the problem is the teachers and how they teach the students and then from there depends on the test scores. Thank you for letting me take a look at your blog post.

      • Thank you so much for reading my blog. I wanted to address what you said when you said that the low test scores were because of the education they are getting. I could agree with you on that but that also elaborates on what I said because The district thought that they just have to make small schools in poor neighbourhoods so they didn’t want to pay a lot for the teachers or supplies because it was on a poor neighbourhood. Look forward to hearing back from you.

        • I feel a little confused when you said “ Losing a relationship with a friend sucks because you have been talking to them and learned so much about them.” Because I don’t know how that correlates to your topic about the history of life academy and the ousd. Could you please explain how this correlates to your point?

      • Dear Melissa Luis

        I am surprised on your work of art “melissa luis shadow box because of the way it looks, and the design of the sides. Also the pictures you added on it . One part that stood out to me was when you wrote your name at the bottom because it’s something i never realized and it unique.

        When people see me they will normally think that I’m White because of my skin color and the way I talk but in reality I am a Latino human being. When people look at this shadow box they will ask me why the p

        • Dear Erick Guierrez

          I am proud of you for doing the shadow box because I thought it was very creative and I think this can become a hobby because it looks like you had fun finding the photos and designing it about yourself and who you are as a person. I think you did great on the shadow box because I get what you are trying to say about yourself and what others think what you do. I see you put the Mexican flag because you are trying to say that you are mexican and also a person who plays games.

        • Dear Erick I am proud that you felt comfortable enough to share things that most people might not want to share with people good job and I will be coming back to see what else you post because this really tell an important story.

        • Hello Erick, my name is Kayla Whittiker and I am a San Jose State University Student. I really enjoyed reading about your box. I like that you explain how you feel the world views you but elaborate on who you really are as a person. While you explained everything that was on the box, it allowed me to understand who you really are. I think it’s pretty cool that you can express yourself through different genres of music. I see you included the word beaner and it made me wonder how does that word make you feel or affect you as an individual?
