** Blogger's note's: Special thanks to LA Weekly's Hillel Aron for his constant text updates on today's proceedings at LAUSD headquarters on Beaudry. Lead once again by Mayor Antonio Villar's education puppet School Board President Monica Garcia, the educational collectivist darlings of the La Raza Left, Academia Semillas del Pueblo, defied another Charter Revocation recommendation by the the professional staff at LAUSD, with a close 4-3 vote today. Joining the Academia chief cheerleader Garcia were Steve Zimmer, Nury Martinez and Dr. Richard "Dr. Death" Vladovic. As five years ago, many with the support group of the educational collective, turned out, banging drums, chanting, blowing horns and offering blessings for a better tomorrow (not including test scores). In the end, the political clout among the Latino political elites, ensured that Academia would get more time to improve its dismal test scores and rectify questions about its financial dealings. More on that in the days ahead---Scott Johnson.
LAUSD Schoolmaster/ School Board President Monica Garcia. What no improvement in six out of eight benchmarks from 2007 review? Lets give them another five year plan to fail.
Academia Semillas del Pueblo Principal Marcos Aguilar to CD 14 City Councilman Jose Huizar: "We need no stinkin increase in our API scores when we have friends like you" (now give us our Elephant Hill acreage before the gods indict you!)
Its all about learning the ways of the revisionist Azteca Collective. Not about the Whiteman Test Scores.
Your thoughts ..............
