90s TV star Brian Austin-Green has joined with current galpal Megan Fox to create a fantasy of a video to decry budget cuts for education wrought by the State Legislature and their fellow SAG member Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
The Kennedy Republican, nominally a member of the GOP, is Republican enough for brain-addled Hollywood losers to buy the party line on what's wrong with our schools. Not enough money. Of course this is despite the fact that spending more money on education including bond measures "for the children" that have now placed the state in a position of near bankruptcy has done nothing to improve the quality of learning for children.
The video - produced by the AustinGreenFoxes as well as parents of tony LAUSD elementary Wonderland Avenue - fails to finger other villains here such as decades of wasteful, profligate spending by District Administration, massive fraud, waste and abuse, the inflexibility of the unions and petty politics played by school boards from both sides of the aisle.
By the way, despite claims of overcrowding and poverty, Wonderland (located in Laurel Canyon and home to the children of Austin-Green as well as many other entertainment industry figures) has a student-teacher ratio and a fundraising prowess schools in more at-risk communities would die for.
Austin-Green and Fox are irresponsible to produce a video like this, using their celebrity, that doesn't contain the full story.
