Concerns About the LASD Enrollment Growth Task Force

Lalahpolitco has been referring readers to a 2013 LANN publication — Simple Math, When 1+1 does not = 2  –  about  problems with the process and the report results of the EGTF, but that page on that website often fails to load in finite time. I want people to be able to read it.  So […]

Why I’m Voting YES on Measure N – the $150M School Bond

Is the school bond really going to be on the ballot?

Summer politics seems to be in a lull as our city council and other district boards take time off.  But there is lots of maneuvering behind the curtain. We all are waiting to see who and what will be on our Nov. 4 ballot. In particular, will there be a $150 million LASD school bond? […]

What is LASD Really Sharing with Bullis Charter School at Blach

What is LASD Really Sharing with Bullis Charter School at Blach

BCS facilities at Blach Junior High could quickly and easily become legally “reasonably equivalent” and even “morally equivalent” IF the LASD Board of trustees could just bring themselves to SHARE.  Right now the trustees and Randy Kenyon claim to share, but actually they starve the charter students.
