Is architecture the problem with LAUSD?




A blogger/teacher posits roughly as much.
Here I am, a "white" person having gone to college & having setting aside the quest for money, power, fancy suit & car, to help our youth, in particular some of our more impovershed, mostly minority, youth, & now I contend with some supercillious "minorities" at the headquarters looking down at me as a mere "sub" who works in the "ghetto" while they work in fancy pants downtown L.A.
Five construction bonds in eleven years, many of which came during the time of Jose Huizar's school board, have certainly contributed to the feeling of hopelessness among LAUSD observers.

Republicans, as well as most topline local media, have consistently given the LAUSD's outrageous construction program of the zeroes a bye while taking every opportunity to vilify teachers. Meanwhile, the Mayor is busy attacking teachers himself.

At minimum, one detects that Rudy Martinez is missing an opportunity by overlooking Jose Huizar's legacy at LAUSD, a legacy of investing in construction rather than classrooms.
