LA Mayor Villaraigosa Fails Dictatorial Takeover Of School Board

Bookmark and Share

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has failed to take over the school board, fire everyone who was elected to it and turn it into a political back-patting appointment position. His attempt was foiled because in this country, unlike Mexico that Villaraigosa looks so fondly upon, we elect our local people.

No doubt if Villaraigosa would have gotten this through and assumed dictatorial power, the board would have been filled with people like himself who want to give illegal aliens full run of the whole of California, including it's education system. This would have the effect of running it into the ground even further than it already is.

Being a high school dropout, he surely knows how to run an educational system and who need to be in charge of it.


... a bill to let him assume control was found unlawful and teachers opposed the plan.


The Los Angeles Unified School District, where Villaraigosa says one in three students fails to graduate, faces financial shortfalls that have crimped California school budgets since Proposition 13 was passed in 1978. The 741,367-student district, parts of which lie outside the city's boundaries, also is contending with an influx of students who speak English as a second language and a shortage of qualified teachers.

Why can't they just say "A bunch of illegal aliens are ruining the whole of the school system"? They try to make it sound like these are legal people whom we need to take care of.

Maybe if Villaraigosa dealt with the reason why there is such an "influx of students who speak English as a second language" and actually focused on not harboring illegal aliens, the school system would actually work like it did before it was ruined by all these criminals and their children. Of course that's not going to happen because Villaraigosa is an open borders proponent and friend of the illegal alien.

Los Angeles public schools have experienced an influx of immigrant children whose first language isn't English, and fewer than 30 percent of students tested proficient in the language last year.

I wonder where they're coming from?

"It is extremely hard to learn your times tables if the language of instruction hasn't been mastered," said Steve Franklin, 32, a history teacher at Sun Valley Middle School, where 94 percent of students are Latino. Franklin, who currently teaches eighth grade, in 2004 was a teacher of the year for both the district and for the county.

Villaraigosa's path to taking over the schools was blocked a month after he took office, when the state legislative counsel's office found unlawful a California Senate bill that would give him power to appoint a majority of members on the board of the Los Angeles Unified School District.
