Jimmy Karam, Poway Schools, PUSD, Poway Unified, John Riley Project, JRP0143

Jimmy Karam joined us to discuss his campaign for Poway School Board.  Jimmy is a husband, father, retired US Naval Officer, business consultant and economics professor.  During our conversation we covered so much ground including the Black in PUSD Instagram account, and a similar account regarding LTBTQ, that discussed racism and discrimination in our local schools.  We discussed the Poway Unified School District’s budget crisis given the forecast of significant deficit spending, the possibility of lower revenues and the financial challenges with implementing COVID-19 initiatives.  We dove into the hot topic of Poway Unified potentially taking over ownership and operation of the Poway Center for the Performing Arts.  Other topics in our discussion included the plan for Fall 2020, distance learning, the Measure P bond, Poway High football and much more.


We also discuss a range of other people and places including Poway, Rancho Bernardo, Sabre Springs, Carmel Mountain Ranch, Morning Creek Elementary, Creekside Elementary, Meadowbrook Middle School, Pomerado Elementary, Midland Elementary, Valley Elementary, Garden Road Elementary, District E, Area E, safe spaces, mental skills training, football, Gavin Newsom, teachers union, PFT, Poway Federation of Teachers, equity, equality, Palomar College, Adam Smith, Wealth of Nations, online learning, smaller classroom sizes, personalized learning
