After reading your article "Laguna High Sports" (May 18), one would get the impression that the entire athletic department has gone haywire and the students are milling about looking for somebody to coach them! The picture the writer paints is bleak at best. Fortunately, the part about funding in our district was clearly defined.
We need to direct much of our ire toward Sacramento (where legislators still fail to come up with a "constant" package to support public education) and the Supreme Court for its decision to make student participation fees illegal.
Instead, your article would put the blame on our school board, our superintendent and a task force of volunteers who came up with some recommendations to alleviate the "no money now, no money coming that we know of" situation.
Declining enrollment puts an additional burden on our district; and with articles such as yours, who in their right minds would move to Laguna Beach with a family?
