Hecho En Mexico Restaurant in El Sereno. Why would Academia Semillas del Pueblo Charter School Principal Marcos Aguilar want to chase out the popular El Sereno eatery, allegedly?
Defending his school, Aguilar tells L.A. Weekly, "What's happening across the country is that there's a development of a myopic reliance on one number. We need to prepare students to think critically, ask questions, write research papers, interview people, speak from experience. Those are all fundamentally not measured on a standards-based exam."But with their exceedingly low achievement on basic skills, few Semillas students will flourish in areas such as writing. Callaghan says the state's testing of core skills is not "the end-all be-all, but you need to know how to add and subtract at a certain age — and at a certain age you need to know vocabulary."
Great late morning to all as storm clouds flow onshore for a late spring rain event. But in the El Sereno or the LA-32 Community, storm clouds have been building and staying stationary over the properties of the controversial Academia Semillas del Pueblo Charter School and the popular Hecho En Mexico Restaurant.
