parental outrage story 1
no safe school plan story
In a sheer coincidence, that has NOTHING to do with the calls I made; videos I sent out on the net; and stories posted on multiple blogs:
Mt. Gleason Middle School had a walk-through inspection by the Office of Environmental Health Services (OEHS, part of LAUSD) issuing a corrective action notice regarding peeling of lead paint (that must be removed); the restrooms must now be kept accessible and unlocked -- and that the "Safe School Plan" has to be update.
OF COURSE I'M HAPPY AS HECK TO HEAR AT LEAST SOMETHING HAPPENED IN REGARDS TO DOING SOMETHING. That bathroom issue is a real "bone" for a lot of these parents.
And hopefully, although that don't fix everything...I hope the parents in the area who collaborated and rocked my cell phone and email feel at least a little better that something was done about some of the problem, since they have spent over a year on some of these problems.
(Some people don't even bother speaking up/participating at meetings because they don't think anything will ever happen...so I hope THOSE people see slight encouragement by this and do something to activate their community against fraud, waste and abuse.)
HEY LOCAL NEWSPAPERS...GET OFF YOUR ASSES...THE PEOPLE WHO CAME TO ME WITH THIS, WENT TO YOU FIRST!!!
