WERE YOU TERMINATED OR FORCED TO RETIRE FROM LAUSD BASED ON FABRICATED CHARGES?

LAUSD logo.jpg
For at least the last 8 years, the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) administrative leadership has systematically targeted teachers at the top of the salary scale, and/or about to vest in lifetime health benefits, and/or disabled, because it is able to save very significant money in combined salary and benefits in just the first year when it forces these high seniority teachers out of their profession in favor of a fresh out of college Teach for America type "teachers" who are hired to replace them on an emergency credential at much lower pay and significantly less benefits. These senior teacher "financial liabilities" to LAUSD are targeted for removal based on fabricated evidence and directed testimony from students and others who are told what to say to support the case for removing these expensive albeit innocent teachers. By adding a morals charge under California Education Code 44939, which is done in most cases, LAUSD administrators are further able to leapfrog over all of the teachers' union collective bargaining rights of the targeted teacher to grievance and arbitration, which is why so many of these targeted teachers are hit with defamatory false allegations of immoral conduct. Although no "verification" of these charges with statements made under penalty of perjury as is required by law is ever part of these charges, the LAUSD Board has admitted that it continues to vote to dismiss these teachers. I know firsthand of the suffering and unfair treatment experienced by so many at the hands of LAUSD administrators because I was a targeted teacher. I have been in "teacher jail." This is why I am reaching out to all current teachers who are being targeted and former teachers who have been forced out of their jobs, out of their life careers, under these dubious circumstances. If you, like me, are a victim of these reprehensible practices and would like to have your voice back and be heard, please contact me. I am interested in bringing us all together in a lawsuit to bring it to an end. Lenny@perdaily.com or Leonard.Isenberg@gmail.com phone 323.938.1258 cell 323.383.7805

TUITION FREE COMMUNITY COLLEGE- TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE?

Brown and Obama.jpg
(Mensaje se repite en Español) Two separate proposals- one by President Obama and one by Governor Brown in the California state budget- that appear to strength both state and federal government commitment to post K-12 public education fail to address a critical factor that might make the increased money that they seek to make available for post secondary education a complete and utter waste for state and federal taxpayers and- more specifically- students, if a major oversight prerequisite for their effective implementation is not first put in place. That prerequisite must be an entity with the independent power and authority to monitor and reform the longstanding dismal performance of school districts like the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), where students continue to be allowed to pass through their K-12 education without attaining the fundamental English language and math skills that they would need to successfully take advantage of college or university. In short, without reform the only thing that is likely to be accomplished is to extend K12 to equally dismal K14.
