Break-Up the LAUSD

Here we go again. This time it is State Assemblyman and would-be "Mayor of the Valley" Keith Richman:

Daily News: Effort planned to split LAUSD - Richman hopes to split LAUSD into small districts
LA Times: Plan to Split L.A. Unified to Be Offered
Daily Breeze: Lawmaker's proposal seeks to break up LAUSD - San Fernando Valley assemblyman says his legislation would divide the district into 14 entities under the guidance of a nine-member panel.

It might help him run for a City Council Seat once Term-limits kicks him in the ass.

I wonder how many more terms does this guy have left in his position

The LAUSD needs to be broken up into smaller districts. The district is too big and alienates parents from involvement in school board decisions. With smaller school districts, it may be possible to win back parents and their children who are now going to private school because of past low test scores in LAUSD.

Where do the school board candidates who want to replace Huizar stand on this?

C'mon we know most of them read this blog because they are not gainfully employed.

Say that photo of the LAUSD Belmont Demolition is the one taken by the Full Disclosure Network, the only (independent) media to cover the 2004 Demolition of the then $330 million, now $470 million soon to be half billion, "world's most expensive school". Just what would you all be talking about if that photo had not been taken? You know what they say, "Out of sight out of mind"

As was often mentioned during the mayoral primaries, it would be extremely difficult to break up LAUSD because of equality requirements. Going from one to 14 districts is going to create one or two wealthy, non-black/Latino minidistricts (Mid-Wilshire/Westside and the northwest SFV) and a bunch of piss-poor, supermajority-black/Latino ones (South Central, southeast 'burbs). State laws forbid such districts from being created.

I could see LAUSD being broken up into 4 or 5 minidistricts, but not 14.

Brilliant. I never thought about that. Richman loses for Treasurer and runs for CD 12 when Smith is gone.

What a repulsive thought. Can't any other council district take the Republican? We're sick of them here in CD 12, although Smith isn't as bad as Bernson was. Give him time I guess.

If Richman is so interested in LAUSD, why hasn't he done something, ANYTHING at all in the long term he's served?

Because he doesn't care, but wanted to jump on the "Kill LAUSD" bandwagon.

Maybe he can start his secession movement up again. That will solve the LAUSD problem.

Hmm, or was he just making it up when he ran for mayor of the Valley?
