School Board: El Sereno Si, Watts No!

Despite a good track record, Green Dot doesn't get to expand in South LA.

And despite a bad track record, Academia Semillas del Pueblo, which offers, among other languages, courses in Nahuatl-Mexicano, gets its charter renewed.

Here's the Times link for all you dum dums.

UTLA pressure is thought to have blocked the Green Dot expansion. The Green Dot Charter might have been approved, ironically, had Green Dot consultant David Tokofsky not recused himself from the vote.

Tokofsky's recusal serves as a reminder of how badly the School Board is ordinarily gamed. Do UTLA members routinely recuse themselves on issues affecting the Union? Would a Mayor-sponsored candidate ever recuse herself on an issue affecting control of the District?

Congrats to Tokofsky for exhibiting some honor among the thieves of our children's future.

It's a prerequisite of the unscientific, anti-rational, anti-western mindset that brown people be treated like defective, yet honorable children who need "that extra helping hand" to get through life.

Man it must really chap this blog’s hide to work so hard, along with McInliar, to try to take this school down, let's recap their failed tour...

“Academia is full of separatist, anti-American, flag burning heretics, we will close the school down immediately”

(Perhaps by ‘immediately they meant when hell freezes over)

Academia is a terrorist maddrassa, it will be closed

(…tick…tock)

We will prove illegal conduct and mishandling of funds at the school and will have its doors closed

(well, if you count weekends, you may have something there to claim)

blah blah blog.

A mountain of lies proved no match for the simple truth.

The school was started by the community, to fill a need in our community. We encourage all parents to do the same. Education isn’t one size fits all, make it work for you.


By the way senor Sam, thanks to your ranting, we gained a world of supporters; thumbs up brother.

Greetings from the World School in East Los Angeles,we'l send you a postcard from the future you can't stop.

Monica Garcia was expanding by the minute. LAUSD staff had to bring in fresh baked cookies from all the school cafeterias in her district to help her make it through the meeting. She's getting to be about the size of two Gloria Molinas. Que gordo!

Again this city is going down the tubes with our electeds supporting everything ILLEGAL. Just take a stroll down Broadway that once was a tourist attraction but now is like walking in Beriut with all the illegals, trash, criminals, stink etc. LA is not considered nor does it have the appeal it use to before our Mecha Mayor got in office. Since his 2 yrs. this city has deteroriated horribly yet he sits and supports the wrong groups. But then again we need to remember Antonio has no class, fairy educated and only got elected cause he's Latino. I wouldn't be proud of getting in just because of my race. Plus what has he done??? Other city Mayors are having their State of the City but not Antonio. He's still fixing traffic lights,planting tree, filling potholes. Wonder what other big city Mayors are doing? You can bet not this crap!!!

Tokofsky "honor among thieves"??? Give us a break. He manages to vote for every issue affecting charters other than specifically Green Dot, including facilities issues, etc. that indirectly affect/benefit Green Dot.

The irony is that this "victory" for the school means the children who most need a good education will instead waste 12 years at the end of which they will be qualified only for the same menial jobs they could have gotten without any education whatsoever.

Congratulations, Academia! Mission accomplished! You've truly succeeded in bringing failed Third-World "education" to the U.S. A few more victories like this, and you will transform California into the mirror image of the impoverished country from which you fled in the first place.

Maybe, Wacko, but no one ever answered the question . . .

"Why train illegals to be 'good American citizens' when what you really want/intend to do is to 'ship them back'"!

(And, did you not pick up the report that said that Academia Semillas English learners had improved their English language skills while at that school, more than LAUSD students overall?)

Every damn professional job within the city of L.A. now places a premium on being bilingual. LAUSD schools currently specialize in creating Latino graduates who speak pocho Spanish AND can't complete a full sentence in English -- i.e., dysfunctionally bilungual.

But, of course, for someone like you, who can TELL from a second story window, as you stated here previously, that a busload of voters ar ILLEGAL (just vy looking at them, and the color of their skin), that's not really this issue, is it?

Will please you stop the lame attempt at making a good point? Have you ever considered that maybe no one is answering your question because it's a f---ing stupid question?

I wonder would these Charter schools be held to the same ethics as every LAUSD school, in terms of LA City using the charter schools as a political campaigns headquarter?

Hey 10:37, get your head out of your ass! It's one thing to hate mexicans. But at leat get your facts straight! Broadway as the rest of downtown has been a garbage pit for YEARS! The mayor has been in office for two years. This City has been going to hell since before Tom Bradley. F you too Sam Yorty! You suck cocks in hell. Daryll Gates didn't do one thing to improve the LAPD when he has his turn at bat. Willy WIlliams? Poo. Bernard Parks? Poo? Bratton? Only because he is implementing some lefty sociological tricks like..hmmm...attemtping to improve residents quality of life by going after loiterers and graffitos. Read a book, jerk-o. Google "broken windows".
And your just an ignoramous if you actually buy that crap about LA going to hell in two years. You're just a silly person.

I'll try a crack at that one, although I can't speak for Walter.

With people like Ted Kennedy, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and George Bush running the show in Washington, and with big business continually lusting for cheap, docile labor from Latin America, there's not a very good chance that illegals will be "shipped back." Therefore, since a large number of will be here for the foreseeable future, why not encourage them to be part of the American (read: not Aztec separatist, not anti-American, not poorly educated, not hopeless and not nurturing an ethnic grudge) fabric?

Just a note here: The children will NOT have 12 years of Semilla education. The school doesn't go up to the high school years.

(Then they will have to go to another school to fill-in all those academic skills that they missed during their time there.)

Garica Takes Flight, Smashes Academia

(EL SERENO) Following the failure of an employee to properly secure her tether, Los Angeles School Board Member Monica Garcia lifted off from the school district's Beaudry avenue headquarters.

Garcia floated for several hours until LAUSD police finally shot her down. Garcia descended quickly; crash landing into Academia Semillas de Pueblo.

Authortities estimated damage to be in the range of $100,000.

2:19 you obviously haven't been to the low income neighborhoods to see the deteroriation the illegals have caused. 4 families living in in 2 bdrd. apt., illegal vendors on every corner making tax free money and spreading bacteria by not wearing gloves and having food sit in hot sun for hours, vendor trucks selling drugs. Illegals are coming to LA in huge numbers because Antonio speaks out supporting them so they think they'll be safe here from ICE. Too bad the media doesn't ever get comments or air any of the Latinos who are educated and born and raised in this city for their view against illegals. How dare those idiot students carrying a Mexican Flag yesterday.
