I am truly perplexed by this "my kid starts LAUSD kindergarden soon, so I should be on the school board??? Are you nutz??? If that argument carried any weight at all, then let's elect a mom with kids ALREADY in school, so AT LEAST they already know where the front door, if nothing else

EVERY KID ATTENDING LAUSD HAS A PARENT AT HOME -- .Having a kid starting soon is a zero distinction, and the fact that he hasn't even started yet (she doesn't even have experience with the school as a parent) even diminishes THAT claim.

Sorry...Ries & Trout says "D-".

Zuma--

There are 7 school board seats.

Can you tell me what type of people you'd want to sit on all 7 seats.

Are you saying all 7 seats should just be teachers like me.

Or can one be a parent?

I mean there are over 1 million of them in the district.

Obviously teachers, parents, and others together can make up a board. I've never bought the argument I get in mailers all the time: "I'm a woman, you're a woman, vote for a woman."

Speaking as a mother with a child already in kindergarten and one who is a junior in high school, I'm sure I could walk circles around a city prosecutor in terms of navigating this system. Of course, I found ways to help my kids succeed in the district, and I never once thought about running for school board.

Funny how someone who hasn't attended a single meeting has bought into the hype that all the schools are bad. Where she lives, she has plenty of options. She ought to be talking to folks in the Northeast Valley if she wants expertise and ideas.

Thank you Zuma for saying that! That is her only qualification? That and the fact that the mayor wants her there to carry out his agenda.

This should be where the mayor ignoring the city to focus on the school comes back to bite him in the ass and it will be about damn time. He needs bitten.

Actually, anonymous poster posing as Jon Lauritzen, you don't need to be a teacher. Being a parent would be better than not. Being a candidate for a mayor who wants to takeover the school system to get his hands on the budget - not such a good idea maybe.

People who would like to be the last board members to sit on the LAUSD Board.

In otherwords.. Board members who believe in what's best for the kids and have come to the conclusion that only breaking up the district will fulfill that vision.

Indeed. Why did Monica Garcia want to be on the board she wants broken up? And Tamar? Antonio is bringing us wonderland.

Well, from the meeting I attended, where else can you get paid $24,000 to sit on a laptop and chat on your cell phone and giggle like a school girl during the presentation of the President's Report on Governance?

It was pretty clear Monica was there just to occupy space since she didn't have the decency to listen to a single thing brought up by the commission.

The ideal candidate would: have some combination of relevant training and experience; show some sign of excellence and serious intellect; be articulate; and have specific, reality-based proposals to improve things. Is that so much to ask?

Walter, you forgot spunky, scrappy fighter who will do what is best for the kids no matter how bad the media press is bashing you, because you KNOW you take your orders from the state and you have to simply let the dorky newspapers blame all the LAUSD woes on you part time school board members.
