** Mayor Sam Exclusive: Controversial Academia Semillas del Pueblo Charter School battles popular Hecho En Mexico Restaurant
The makes no mention of why these four elected politicians voted to ignore Superintendent John Deasy's recommendation to shutter the school.The paper doesn't challenge Garcia's view that schools that experiment with children should be allowed continue churning out students who cannot read or do their arithmetic, as compared to the identical socioeconomic kids elsewhere.The paper doesn't challenge Garcia's view that experimental failing schools deserve to continue on for more than a decade, affecting many children.Toward the end of the piece, Blume includes a "let's hear from the other side" paragraph.Yet Blume doesn't choose to quote from the many groups and people on the legitimate, thinking other side who are aghast at how far behind the Semillas children are falling -- and who have cogent arguments about why this is bad.
..... and judging from Academia's Founder Marcos Aguilar latest action against Hecho En Mexico, there will be plenty of story content in the near future for the "Old Gray Hag on Spring Street" to change its reporting track record on the failing charter. (If Blume dares crosses the elites that controls Charter Schools in Los Angeles).
