THIS LOS ANGELES UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT (LAUSD) IS BECOMING A REAL PUBLIC SAFETY HAZARD AND THREAT TO SOCIETY AS A WHOLE...IT MUST BE STOPPED! (THERE IS NO HOPE FOR REFORM...SO WHAT CAN PEOPLE DO?)
After the past couple months, and especially the past couple weeks, hearing a lot of horror stories from parents about LAUSD and speaking to LAUSD personnel...i really get the combative, stonewall, cover-your-ass, pretend everything is perfect vibe from these LAUSD people.
It's gotta be broken up. people on mayor sam are talking about letting
it go bankrupt as a way of shooting it like a horse that you put out of misery.
Is this possible? how do you dismantle the school district?
Then who takes over the education system?
The most skeptical side of zd has always felt that the mayor was sent to kill-off lausd/neuter it as much as possible.
I have been all focused on the construction budget, and front-end loaded management contracts,and the non-transparency/no-accountability of non-profit charters and all that shady potential...(AND THOSE ARE VERY REAL CONCERNS...ESPECIALLY WITH ANTONIO SETTING UP HIS OWN EDUCATION NON-PROFIT)
But after speaking with parents and administrators (and LAUSD's combative,
a-hole/cover-up/deny everything nature...
Maybe the powers that be who backed Antonio to take over the school system are correct in their premise.
So then what happens? how do you do it, beyond the slow and grueling process of doing it through charters? Is that the only/fastest way?
In a related matter...i was already given the "heads up" that ZD's blogging services will be required over Antonio's Eastside High School take-over plan. (Of course the people contacting me are AGAINST it.)
So i am gonna start aksing them which is worse? Antonio or LAUSD?
I KNOW that there is going to be a faction that will be against Antonio on any and
everything, just because he slammed the door on so many people he made campaign promises to -- and his overall shadiness.
And I think he's shady as hell, too...as you know...
But LAUSD is maybe even 2% worse. So it's like 49% vd 51% as to who is worse. And the edge MAY go to Antonio.
Any thoughts as to the chances of Antonio running his cluster, better LAUSD-losers -- and how you can put an end to the entire district.
