Daily News Buys LAUSD Takeover Spin
The Daily News has taken a "toss the bums out" mentality that the eternal problems of the LAUSD can be solved by bringing in yet another team. This is great in theory but particularly with respect to the third district of the Board of Education, should incumbent Jon Lauritzen be defeated, this will make for the fourth member to hold the seat in less than ten years. The voters of the district need more stability than that. The current team may have issues but the problems facing the district goes back decades. Bringing in a slate of candidates backed by the Mayor in order to gain control of the district's billion dollar construction budget is not the be all-end all.
