Understatement of the Day
These gems are brought to us by no other than Weezy Huizy, my favorite School Board prez!
From the Daily News:
School board President Jose Huizar believes the district has a responsibility to be better prepared to prevent large-scale fights.Ya think? Here's my bigger question. Forget what we are facing in five to ten years, we are facing it now. What are we doing NOW, other than glad handing around CD 14 thumping on your chest. Roll up your sleeves and start solving the problems at the schools, which is more impactful upon the future that you are so concerned about.
Ethnic tensions have always existed, but not at this intensity and frequency, Huizar said -- a problem that could spill into the community if left unchecked.
"The bigger question is: Is this a prelude to what the city of Los Angeles will be facing in the next five to 10 years -- these same types of issues on the city streets?" Huizar said. "We need to help them deal with the issues at schools or the city has to prepare itself."
I'll step off my soapbox now...
