I graduated from Ramona High School, The second oldest high School in the Riverside Unified School District. In fact I spent six of my best years in the RUSD. Before that I was enrolled in the Moreno Valley Unified School District and before that I had a short stint in the Val Verde Unified School District.
What makes a school district "unified" you might ask. If it was elementary, middle school, and high schools in the same district, it is unified. Based on my experience, I assumed that was everyone. Not the case. In Maricopa county there are over 100 school DISTRICTS. That's right... DISTRICTS. Only 14 are unified. I think this is ridiculous. Your thoughts?
