OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Students at an Oakland middle school are looking at double the trouble if they misbehave.

Two 36-year-old educators who happen to be identical twins are sharing the job of principal at Claremont Middle School this year. And parents and staff say the novel arrangement has been good for the public school and its 410 students.

Ronald and Reginald Richardson have followed the same academic and career paths all their lives. They were principals at neighboring schools in Richmond before they were hired to work in Oakland last summer.

Before that, they both attended San Francisco State University on track and field scholarships, earned teaching credentials, and then master's degrees in education from UC Berkeley.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that hardly anyone at school can tell them apart.
