Public Schools need an immediate overhaul!! I grew up in the private school academy sector and I strongly feel students in public school sector are deserving of a better education and life. Give them the tools to succeed and will always succeed. There are fabulous public school teachers out there who desperately need LAUSD assistance. We support you!!

Problem is, it is not the school's job to teach these kids manners, respect and discipline. A teacher with 30-40 students doesn't have the time to be their parent. I had an excellent education in Oakland schools because back in the good old days the trouble makers were expelled and the parents were held accountable, making the learning environment good for those students who wanted to learn. Less problems in the classroom = more being taught. It is the parents responsibility to keep their kids out of gangs and act polite, not the schools. The schools are not social services, they are learning institutions, and those students interfering with the learning process should be removed.
