Marianne Irwin, CUSD Board of Trustees Meeting "I think we need to address another statistic. The district has published a great one, and that is that 94% of our students go on to higher learning, when I know the fact is fewer than 45[%] are attending four years. And I think that’s a statistic that’s played with, and I think we can do better."
Irwin made this statement during public comments at the October 15, 2007 CUSD Board of Trustees meeting. Irwin is a 36-year teaching veteran who teaches world literature at Dana Hills High School.
