Wow.....the best interests of the STUDENTS are to be considered in evaluating CTA and UTLA members.

This must be making J.Brown the UnionCrat politicians in Sacramento really squirm....The very IDEA of considering what may be best for STUDENTS has been unthinkable ever since the UNION took over as the LARGEST single contributor to the Calif Unioncrat Party.

Considering these "Students" will be one day running the economy, I think its in everyones best interest to assure they have the best education that can be suppled to them. A well educated child will be more likely to get a good job or a well paying carrier, in turn they make more money. The more well educated people we have making good money the better the economy should get. When the economy gets better EVERYBODY benefits.
Bada-Bing Bada-boom.........everybody

You wanna fix the economy? Start at the ground floor. Start with educating the people who will be one day running it.

A good economy starts with education.

Many people fail to realize LA teachers are burdened with teaching a majority of students who do not speak english, have no academic support at home, and generally have very little interest in education as a whole. LA is a third world city with a third world student body, getting third world results.

Everyone who has lived here throughout the 60's, 70's and early 80's knows California had superior public schools. Once the illegal alien invasian begans test score plummeted. It's not the teachers, its the students and their uncaring parents.

How does a superior school justify "Age Correction"

Big Teachers are high paid Government agents. They use "democratic means" to elect Big Union Bosses to further their interests.

The children often ask me what these high paid Government agents did with all the tobacco money their free-spending out-of-control multiculturally diverse Homosexual and non-Homosexual California politician pals gave them - money that is stolen from "the little folks".

I always tell them that their politician pals had their Big Wall Street buddies cook up a "tobacco tax futures Bond" scam for them- bonds the increasingly destitute overtaxed California home "owners" will ultimately be responsible to pay.

Big Teachers then gobbled up the loot with nary a burp and then demanded MORE! Overburdened California taxpayers - most of whom are NON smokers - must demand California politicians begin putting the interests of our victimized little children ahead of the interest of overpaid fat-cat Big Teacher Government agents.

Better to have the young illegals inside and sequestered from the rest of us during the day. Whether they "learn" anything or not is of no importance as a long as the citizens are forced to fund the never ending demands of the CTU/UTLB. Pay up suckers is the motto of the State Democratic Party and it has been wildly successful.
