When the Q&A period commenced, Lenny was the first to be called. He related the recent test fixing scandals in New York, D.C, and now Atlanta and asked Cortines to respond to similar allegations that Lenny reported to Cortines 2 years ago along with physical evidence that Lenny has about the same test fixing going on at LAUSD. Immediately, the smile departed from Cortines face and he became ostensibly defensive. But Lenny went on to relate his personal experience as a teacher long aware of these "fixing" issues - as most teachers are - and how he had been targeted and terminated for his refusal to stand by silently, but rather attempting to report it to the Los Angeles Times Reporter Mitchell Landsberg, who although reporting this scandal to Cortines, never wrote a word about it in the Times. As of this writing, the L.A. Times continues to blackout this topic and many others dealing with LAUSD corruption.
