New Mayoral Majority LAUSD School Board Acts Quickly To Help Students and Fix The System with $35 Million for Part-time Cafeteria Workers!

You have a school system that is a dropout, criminal producing factory. It’s become a regional, if not national crisis. You have to improve student achievement immediately! QUICK! What’s the first thing you should do? Attack the Superintendent and bully him into finding emergency money for the part-time cafeteria workers that you don't have.

From latimes.com

After a two-hour debate this week, the board voted to extend the schedule of part-time cafeteria workers to four hours a day. That change immediately qualified 2,352 workers for health benefits under existing labor agreements.

The school district puts the annual new cost at $35.5 million; the union estimate is about $28 million. Either way, the district has identified no money to pay for the benefits. [But Yoli Flores Aguilar snapped at Brewer that there was plenty of beuracracy in the system and he has a week to find the $35 million. And she should know...it's her second school board meeting.]

The move to extend benefits could not have happened faster for members of the new board majority. They introduced the motion at their first regular meeting in July and passed it at the first opportunity -- this week's meeting. The previous board had opted for less expensive staff recommendations that focused not on health coverage but on the most efficient means to improve service, which all sides agree is lacking.

"We can be leaders in national healthcare," including pressing for universal coverage, LAUSD School Board Head Muppet Monica Garcia said. "Health benefits for cafeteria workers will help this district gain its own health."

[How about being leaders in national education first first. How many fronts do you think LAUSD can attack at once? No one voted in the shady Villargarcia board to fix the national health care system for part time cafeteria workers!]

Looks like the new mayoral-backed LAUSD school board is off to a good start. (A good start if you have investments in juvenile rehabilitation facilities and the prison system.]

"Fix the system with $25 million for part-time cafeteria workers"

How many of then are documented? Why are they part time workers only. How much aid does each one accept from the federal, state, county and city governments. I bet when they collect all of the aid packages and hospitalization services, they make $35k to $50K year. Part time work,full tine pay

Oh come on, Zuma!

$28 to $35 million wouldn't have paid for that many new teachers, books, supplies, after school programs, teacher assistants, sports equipment, school safety enhancements, computers or classrooms anyway! Yeesh...

The LAUSD school board really got this one right and the timing couldn't have been more perfect to "send a message."

That message being; The Key To Education is "longer, more relaxed lunch hours for the kids."

Yes, come and join us, ZD and Matt.

But, first you need to join my union (SEIU), because we made this all happen.

You'll love working for LAUSD! Same hours and same duties as you have now, but with a paycheck!

But, of course, we get half of it for our hard work.

I am game for the Zuma voting idea that someone else suggested.

I vote KEEP ZUMA DOGG so the regular people can have our voices heard.

I'm just glad that he goes to City Hall as often as he does and says what I would say if I could go.

$35M for PART TIME ILLEGAL, DISEASE RIDDEN ILLEGALS!!!

How much more can we tolerate from this corrupt Mexican mafia downtown???

I hope that Walter Moore, David Hernandez and anyone else running for mayor is making a list and checking it twice!

We can see to it that all of these crooks are thrown out on their collective asses by simply having every candidate for mayor et al...EXPOSE THE FRAUD AND CORRUPTION that is running rampant in every department in this city!!!

All the candidates need is video, audio, and a complete list of the exhorbitant, fraudulent squandering of our taxpayer money...not to mention ALL of the taxes (fees) they have criminally imposed upon us!!

HOLD THEIR FEET TO THE FIRE AND THEY WILL BE RUN OUT OF TOWN!!!

WAKE UP THE CITIZENRY!!!! THEY ARE STILL SLEEPING!!!!
