Please tell me just how is it that Alliant International University can "have space" on property that belongs to a school district, bought and paid for with local taxes?
Interesting that McCann takes it as a matter of course. What about public input? What about misleading students from Sweetwater District who have better options elsewhere?
Well, fortunately only 20 students have fallen for this ruse. Let's hope that will be it, they will move on to better schools, and no one from Sweetwater will follow in their footsteps.
Brand Scam Number, what, 738? McCann completely taken in, or just going along?

Dr. Brand is once again promoting Alliant University which is in serious financial trouble,as reported over two months ago. They are selling their campus .Dr. brand wants to get our students into Alliant for his own selfish reasons. The prohibitive costs should have been reason enough not to support Alliant. Dr. Brand is about one thing only himself. He will need a new position after he is run out of Sweetwater and is setting up his new position. With a new board and Brands decisions being looked into a lot of things will be dropped, and we hopefully can get back to the business of education. brand will soon be a distant memory. Brand states in this article that he has worked corrobboratively with SWC and the elementary districts,what a joke. Dictators like Brand only dictate.
Ed Brand, poster child for self-serving poseur, twisting educational goals to suit himself and his coterie of pals, who feed off the children's fare. Remember the immortal words of Ruth Chapman: "If Ed Brand's lips are moving, he is lying!".
My two cents Says:
How ironic, the only thing that doesn't change in the district are the superintendent
and the board. Also, change in education is not necessarily a positive. There's a whole generation of adults who can't spell because of misguided and poorly implemented "change". Where are the longitudinal studies that prove that this new change will benefit the students. Speaking of proving that things are beneficial - proofs are what we teach kids yet don't seem to be concerned with in all these educational "changes."
Change is also coming in educational funding - it's called Local Control Funding Formula. Everyone in the district has a legal right to be included in the funding decision being made. Educate yourself on the LCFF and speak up at board meetings!

Ed Brand pretends to care about the students in Sweetwater Unified School District . If this were true there wouldn't be five Science teachers at Otay Ranch High that have no dedicated lab space, so much for Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) education . Not having labs for five teachers affects approximately 800 to 850 plus students each year. If Ed Brand were serious about (STEM) education he would have addressed this issue at the start of the school year. The students deserve labs were they can experiment and explore but they are being denied this hands on experience. Ed Brand has the power and the finances to change this. However, what has he done to address the problem? Nothing

Very interesting, with a little humor thrown in...can't wait for the next article.
I agree......no harm, no foul.

Tom, your column today reminds me of Paul Harvey's "Rest of the Story" radio show. In stories like this, I'm always extremely disappointed that the media I'm supposed to trust aims for sensationalism by selective omission. What other news stories have fallen victim to the same tactic so that I don't have all the facts?
Not to change the subject, but what kind of person would agree to become the spouse of this pearl among men? Good grief!
Well Tom, it sounds like your "roasting" days with CVPD are all but gone...but, I think you got one more in!

Great article. The quotes make it clear what the argument is about, and the story puts the battle in a context of the past arguments affecting this latest attempt to keep Barrio Logan a living piece of San Diego History. The future of an area that has had to fight for a long time to keep its identity and to improve its value as property and as a community should look forward to what ought to be, rather than backward at outmoded ideas about industry and commerce. That is not the San Diego way! I wish Ms. Gomez all the best as she takes Barrio Logan into the future in the same spirit that has removed many eyesore areas in the past forty years. Creating a beautiful and historic environment has brought more rather than less wealth to the San Diego community. I hope the same goes for this battle for Barrio Logan.
