like the director of one of the charter schools said last month when they voted down the bond measure, there’s no better place in the country to start a charter school than Vallejo

the vallejo school district is on its last legs. of course performance scores are up, student population is down and mainly the asian kids are excelling, not listening to garbage, wearing their hats sideways and pants around their ankles.

Her bosses; your elected officials, would not allow her to do what needed to be done. I hope she succeeds.

During her tenure, Bishop did everything to add to and perpetuate the decrepit condition of the Vallejo school system. Why would anyone in their right mind support any education related endeavor of hers?

This old hack is too stupid to get away with running a crooked "charter" school, she's bad news and I doubt she gets too far with this. She's through, nothing left in her life but blaming everyone else for her incompetence. Maybe she could go on a pity tour like crooked hillary.

Looking forward to Mrs. McConnell letter to the editor in support of this new charter school with Dr. Bishop at the helm.

In 2012, "Quality Education Coming to Downtown", she praised the new WIT Academy charter school opening by an ex-engineer, ex-teacher Kearney-Brown. She applauded how MKB was planning to focus on “the Latino and African American population scoring well below that mark” with her WIT Academy downtown, and help transform the downtown. And as anyone who knows her will tell you, MKB is an advocate of helping people of color reach new heights of success.

Now we actually have a person of color, from Richmond, who wants to lead the way for a new Vallejo charter school, a professional with a BA, MA and PhD in education and dozens of awards. A person who wants to start a charter school with the same focus as MKB, but with the skills and experience to do it.

Surely, this is the ticket, Dr. Bishop will take off where the WIT Academy failed and address this desperate need, leading the effort as a professional in education, with experience, intimately familiar with the students, the culture, the challenges of running a school.

This old broad is a PROVEN failure in the education sector and only an idiot would even consider allowing her to be involved in anything where money is concerned.
