In this morning's DN, Councilman Smith, whom I realize many of you don't like, is trying to head off another iffy school project in Granada Hills---a community which doesn't have a single hospital within five miles.
I'd love to be able to apprehend and analyze the decisions to build these things at a glance, how the votes went, what the trends in the District were when the School Board in its wisdom decided to greenlight each particular project. And sorely needed are budget and site review of the various projects, review beyond what the fishwraps are capable of.
Nearly everyone I've ever spoken to in conjunction with building an LAUSD school only reports what a big boondoggle the project has been. And could they be building anything uglier than the new school at the old administrative building site? That school will embarrass the skyline from Sunset.
We have many great blogs in LA, but I'm not aware of any that track the ongoings of the LAUSD from the common-sense citizen's perspective. Some of you who dream of being another Zuma Dogg should get stupid busy with that---it would quickly become a vital reference tool for our City.
