Aaron Edwards called me this morning after he read my story on Valenzuela Elementary on page A3.
Edwards had two things he wanted to make sure were clear:
1. According to the California Department of Education, Valenzuela has been closed since 2012. The story states that Valenzuela merged with Hong Kingston in 2012. Edwards wants it to be clear what that means – that Valenzuela is not a school. It’s a magnet of Hong Kingston.
2. Edwards also wanted to say that he didn’t want the story to be “me against the district.” He just wanted the issue to be addressed.
