"If at first you don't succeed, try, try, again"
This seems to have become the motto of the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) Board of Directors. Two weeks ago in a clandestine yet well orchestrated proceeding that only certain reporters were initially made aware of, the LAUSD Board attempted to settle potential legal liability for the alleged sexual harassment of LAUSD Director of Leasing and Asset Management Scot Graham by then Superintendent Ramon Cortines As we pointed out at the time, there were certain legal and logical problems with the Board's misguided and poorly executed attempt. Tomorrow, Tuesday, June 5, 2012 at their 10 a.m. meeting., the LAUSD Board is going to try and take a second shot at putting this situation to bed, although considering the charges, maybe that is not the best metaphor to use.
