    I read with interest Jon Cummings’ letter titled “Public education maligned.” I too was at the Aug. 10 CVUSD meeting. I agree that public education was maligned, but for justifiable reasons. As I see it, at least 50% of the people attending the meeting were in favor of Sandee Everett and her concerns for public education.

    As a product of and retiree of the Los Angeles Unified School District, I’ve seen a gradual transition from a world-class education system to a third-world-class education system in California, while the only thing increasing is the cost and a reduction of class sizes to assuage the demands of teachers unions.

    Approximately one-third of students in the Conejo Valley are being educated outside of the public school system. That is an outrageous figure when you realize that the parents are paying for private school for their children’s sake and involuntarily paying for public schools at the same time.

    I wonder what would happen to our public schools if they had to compete for funds through a voucher system? I can only guess that they would have the choice of competing for those funds by providing a quality education or close their doors.

    Either way, if the 50% of the people supporting Ms. Everett ever had the power of the voucher, that would settle who raises children, parents or public education “professionals.”
