Cute inside, with lots of vegan treats, including pastries and savories.
Not for coffee aficionados, but it's a good place to get excellent teas and nice coffee.

Re: “It's Your Move

I don't understand why extra pay for seniority is such a "bad" thing. I suppose you could argue that there are tenured teachers who, one they become such, stop being good teachers and just sit on their ass making money and taking advantage of the system. Yeah, there are some teachers like that. Just like there are some poor people who take advantage of welfare. This isn't a good enough reason for me to do away with something because of a few bad people. Pay that is partially based on seniority (as well as degrees, inservice training, and other upkeep) encourages teachers to stay in their community and build relationships with parents and their fellow teachers. Many of these people have put a lot of work and effort into something that has become increasingly difficult for them (one of my teacher friends, for example, cited how when she began teaching over 20 years ago, she had maybe one autistic kid and no ADHD kids. Recently, she had two and four, respectively, as well as 5 ESOL students and a meth addict's daughter). Every year, her job gets anything but easier, and her students' scores will fluctuate. Where would this put her if Measure 60 passed?
