HOW LAUSD ILLEGALLY TARGETS AND REMOVES (MORE EXPENSIVE) SENIOR TEACHERS

LAUSD Board.jpg
The following article is regarding an LAUSD teacher named Edward Carter(LAUSD DOCS WHISTLEBLOWER (1).pdf). Mr. Carter engaged in clearly protected activity by recording via cellphone a student throwing a ball toward Carter's head and torso area. Mr. Carter reported the incident to his site administrator and gave the administrator a copy of the video from his cellphone. According to the letter, site administration deliberately hid the exculpatory evidence from the senior administration and school board of Los Angeles Unified School District, which lead to Mr. Carter being dismissed from LAUSD.

BOYCOTT LAUSD

Black Boycott of Public Education.jpg
One action that would finally confront and radically change LAUSD's corrupt administrative culture would be a districtwide strike of all students, so that LAUSD administration could no longer just collect Average Daily Attendance (ADA) money from the State of California, based exclusively on mere student attendance, while continuing to fail to educate the majority of its super majority and yet defacto segregated minority students. It's 65 years after Brown vs. Board of Educations said, "Separate but equal...is inherently unequal" and we are more segregated today than we were then.

CEDARS SINAI - DISINGENUOUS LIP SERVICE IN LIEU OF REAL SERVICE

Cedars Sinai.png
What has become endemic to large dysfunctional organizations like the non-profit Cedars Sinai Medical Center, is that they clearly don't have enough staff to accomplish even their most basic functions. Cedars tells their clientele that they care and solicit their input to improve service, while by any objective standard they continue to do absolutely nothing to offer even minimally acceptable levels of service- or change any of their entrenched inappropriate and dysfunctional behavior.

FINALLY DESEGREGATED PUBLIC EDUCATION- THE BEST REPARATION

A raparation that pays for any and all education that minority students might want in an education conducive environment would go a long way to finally addressing the legacy of slavery that as of now continues to go unaddressed. Come to think of it, all education for all students irrespective of ethnicity has been shown to more than pay for itself, when given the significantly higher productivity, earnings, and taxes of a highly educated workforce.

WHY SINGLE PAYER PUBLIC RUN HEALTHCARE IS BEST

Single Payer.png
Under our present for profit private insurance run system, one-third of every dollar spent on healthcare actually goes to insurance company overhead costs and profit, while the French single-payer government run non-profit healthcare system costs about half of what our system costs and yet by every measure gives better healthcare: The French with their single-payer system live longer and don't get as sick as Americans, because they receive appropriate medical treatment in a more timely manner from doctors who are not seeing 30-40 patients a day, like American doctors do, where malpractice is a predictable result.

AN OPEN LETTER TO LAUSD'S SUPERINTENDENT AUSTIN BEUTNER

The longstanding endemic corruption at a clearly dysfunctional and always prospectively bankrupt Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) will not get better until some of LAUSD's dyfunctional practices- both financial and academic- are finally addressed, eliminated, or radically changed.

LAUSD: BANKRUPTCY REORGANIZATION A BETTER SOLUTION THAN PROP EE

LAUSD Board.jpg
The problem with passing a Proposition EE to once again bailout the longstanding dysfunctional Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) is that it does nothing to address the underlying LAUSD endemic corruption and dysfunction that has continued now over decades to put administrative and LAUSD "agreed corporate vendors" interests and profit above those of what should be LAUSD's primary and fundamental function of educating students with enough fairly compensated teachers.

LAUSD PARCEL TAX...TO REWARD ENDEMIC LAUSD MISMANAGEMENT?

The problem with passing a Proposition EE to once again bailout the longstanding dysfunctional Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) is that it does nothing to address the underlying LAUSD endemic corruption and dysfunction that has continued now over decades to put administrative and LAUSD "agreed corporate vendors" interests and profit above those of what should be LAUSD's primary and fundamental function of educating students with enough fairly compensated teachers.

COLLUSIVE SETTLEMENT OF LAUSD STRIKE

Garcetti Beutner Caputo Pearl.jpg
The collusive settlement of the UTLA-LAUSD strike just announced on the morning of January 22nd by LAUSD Superintendent Austin Beutner, UTLA's President Alex Caputo-Pearl, and L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti predictably fails to consider the real reasons for LAUSD's longstanding failure to educate its predominantly minority and still segregated student population in a district that remains more concerned with the profits of its corporate "agreed upon no-bid vendors," rather than spending money on the timely addressing of its students' subjective academic levels and needs.

AT LAUSD THE PROBLEM IS NOT JUST CLASS SIZE

Social Promotion.jpg
While class sizes are too large at LAUSD, which is problematic to say the least, this is not what makes it impossible for teachers to be effective. Rather it is the fact that the vast majority of these students have been passed through their prior grade-levels- social promotion- without ever mastering the prior grade-level standards that would have allowed them to be effectively engaged by their teachers in subsequent grade-levels.
