While I was covering a Sharks game this week, it was an off-the-cuff comment from a Malibu parent that got me thinking about this week’s editorial topic; “It takes an army to support a public school.”

I’m well aware that the Santa Monica-Malibu School District is a point of contention for parents of school-age children in this community, and rightfully so: The decline of public education standards, whether that be from overcrowded classes, antiquated materials, budget cuts or any number of other issues, is frustrating.
