  1. I see a ton of job ads that require Spanish in CA.
  2. When should I start my hoop jumping 😂. Am I safe waiting till August?
  3. That I know. Backup is a 4 year school.
  4. @Arcadiai have no idea what you are trying to tell me. Are you trying to tell me you are happy for your children that classes are online? OK. Are you trying to tell me CCs should remain online permanently? Then we disagree. I am not even sure what conversation I am having now.
  5. But CCs here are virtually free. They are mostly tax funded. So taxpayers can’t vote with their wallets as much as they could at a UC for example.

  11. Oh, nothing bad. Just not what would work here - asynchronous, board participation requirements. Even assignments, we need more focused work.
  12. I meant their AP English courses. I have talked to some parents and those aren’t exactly what we need. It’s hard for me to explain what I want, but I will know when I see it. 🙂
  13. This is the way AoPS did it in prealgebra, if I remember correctly. I like this as well.
