Another Student Murdered At An LAUSD High School
Parents should not have to send their children to dangerous, mismanaged institutions just because a bunch of career politicians, who send their own children to private schools, are willing to sacrifice others' children to win the approval of the teachers' union.
Parent who want to opt out of the LAUSD should be able to do so, and should receive vouchers to help pay for private school. If you want to send your children to schools where they might be murdered, that's your choice. But let other parents elect for safer private schools if that's what they want for their children.
And what kind of thing is our City Council focusing on in times like this? Well, naturally, they're working on a way to stop people from smoking in public parks. Forget the murders, forget the fleet of trucks that's on its way from Mexico with no emissions controls. The highest and best use of the City Council's time is to protect you from a whiff of Macanudo. Perfect.
