STATE AUDIT OF LAUSD TEACHER JAIL COSTS- JUST ANOTHER COVERUP

Cooking the books.jpeg(Mensaje se repite en Español)

What kind of a credible and independent audit of the costs related to LAUSD's removal of allegedly bad teachers can the State of California Auditor objectively perform, when it goes into the audit without questioning anything LAUSD tells them?

While there is no question that it is an expensive proposition to keep charged teachers sitting around often for years on end, while having to pay their salaries and those of their subsitutes, the California State Auditor in their recently released audit of this practice never once mentions nor takes into consideration the fact that LAUSD actually saves a fortune in the end, when it is able to rid itself- by hook or by crook or by fabricated charges- of teachers at the top of the salary scale with expensive benefits packages and the further cost of expensive lifetime health benefits, if it doesn't move to get rid of them- one way or another- before they vest.

The State Auditor presumes from the beginning of its audit that there is an actual net cost and not a net savings achieved when LAUSD targets, removes, and ultimately fires high seniority teachers. It doesn't even consider there just might be an actual savings to LAUSD of $60,000 a year in combined salary and benefits in just the first year these teachers are gone. Simply stated, a major component of what this audit should have looked into has been completely ignored and omitted. And with this blatant omission goes any chance of this audit having any validity or those at LAUSD who continue to perpetrate this fraud being held accountable for their criminal behavior.

For only one small illustration in this flawed audit- and what can only be considered a purposeful oversight- one only need look at what is not considered here and elsewhere in the attached State audit. For example, while this audit says: "For a selection of 18 reassignments[teachers being charged], costs per case ranged from about $7,000 to nearly $315,000 during the period we reviewed." However, no information or statistics of any kind are given as to how many of these teachers- 93% of whom in unaudited reality were at the top of the salary scale- were forced out and replaced by fresh out of college "teachers" working on an emergency credential for $35,000, instead of $80,000 a year. And, of course, also with a significantly less expensive benefits packages.

If just 16 of these forced out teachers were at the top of the salary scale, the average cost of removing them was $19,687.50, while again the savings to the District was approximately $60,000, leaving a net savings to LAUSD of $40312.50. And that's in just the first year of this gift to the District that keeps on giving as long as teachers continue to be dissuaded from sticking around too long.

It is worth mentioning that both my attorney and I contacted the California State Auditor during their audit with sworn evidence to prove that LAUSD's is actuallysaving money in the long run on teachers' jail, their substitutes, and all the out of pocket costs it immediately recoups, when it forces these good high seniority teachers out. I was assured by several people in the California Auditor's office that they would look into this...

And of course, how or why could the public be concerned, if they are constantly told by media marching in lock step with LAUSD that this is about the costs of dealing with "teacher misconduct" and not a felonious scam (see Penal Code 132-134) to get rid of high seniority teachers, so the District can save money to squander elsewhere, which is why they needed to target senior teachers in the first place.

There's no way LAUSD or the California Auditor could get away with this criminal calumny without the complete cooperation of the mainstream and public media that refuses to report what is actually going on and why.

If you have any doubts, just read reporter Howard Blume's Los Angeles Times LAUSD party line article about this recent state audit that unquestioningly parrots LAUSD's position that this is only about teacher misconduct:

L.A. Unified Has Persistent Problems Resolving Allegations of Teacher Misconduct

Do you think its a coincidence that every time the issue of teacher misconduct is mentioned that a picture of convicted pervert teacher Mark Berndt is hauled out to paint all teachers with that same pervet brush? Could that be why one element of the Rafe Esquith vs. LAUSD class action suit is defamation...and another is age discrimination?

Do you find the media and their "teachers-suck," "power to principals," "privatization is the best thing that's happened to public schools" disgusting and distasteful? The powers that be may "control" the main media but it's people like us who control the SOCIAL MEDIA.

¿Qué clase de una auditoría creíble e independiente de los costes relacionados con la eliminación de los supuestamente malos maestros del LAUSD puede Auditor del Estado de California objetivamente realizar, cuando se entra en la auditoría, sin cuestionar nada LAUSD les dice?

Si bien no hay duda de que es una propuesta costosa para mantener a los maestros acusados ​​sentados a menudo durante años, al tiempo que, además de pagar sus salarios y las de sus substitutos, el Auditor del Estado de California en su auditoría recientemente publicado de esta práctica ni una sola vez menciona ni tiene en cuenta el hecho de que el LAUSD realmente ahorra una fortuna en el final, cuando es capaz de deshacerse misma- por las buenas o por crook- de los profesores en la parte superior de la escala salarial con los paquetes de beneficios caros y el costo adicional de caro beneficios para la salud de toda la vida, si no se mueve para deshacerse de ellos- una manera u otra.

si el Auditor del Estado presupone desde el inicio de su auditoría que existe un coste neto real y no un ahorro neto alcanzados cuando los objetivos del LAUSD, quita, y en última instancia dispara maestros de alta antigüedad, que ni siquiera considera no sólo podría ser un ahorro real al LAUSD de $ 60,000 en salarios y beneficios combinados sólo en el primer año se han ido estos maestros. En pocas palabras, un componente importante de lo que se suponía que esta auditoría para investigar ha sido completamente ignorado y omitido. Y con esta flagrante omisión va alguna posibilidad de esta auditoría tener alguna validez.

Por sólo una pequeña ilustración que esta auditoría de lo que sólo puede ser considerada como una supervisión purrposeful, solo hay que mirar a lo que no se considera aquí y en otras partes de la auditoría Estado adjunto. Por ejemplo, mientras que esta auditoría dice: "Para una selección de 18 reasignaciones [maestros están cargando], los costos por caso osciló entre $ 7.000 a casi $ 315.000 durante el período que analizamos." Sin embargo, no hay información o estadística de cualquier tipo se dan en cuanto a cómo muchos de estos profesores- 93% de los cuales eran en la parte superior del salario escala- se vieron obligados a cabo y se sustituye por recién salido de "maestros" de la universidad trabajando en una credencial de emergencia por $ 35.000, en lugar de $ 80,000 al año y con los paquetes de beneficios significativamente menos costosos.

Si solo 16 de estos maestros fueron forzados a salir en la parte superior de la escala salarial, el coste medio de la eliminación de ellos fue de $ 19,687.50, mientras que una vez más los ahorros para el Distrito fue de aproximadamente $ 60.000, dejando a un ahorro neto para el LAUSD de $ 40,312.50. Y eso es sólo en el primer año de este regalo para el Distrito que sigue dando el tiempo que los maestros siguen siendo disuadido se peguen demasiado tiempo.

Vale la pena mencionar que tanto mi abogado y yo en contacto con el Auditor del Estado de California durante su auditoría con pruebas para demostrar que el LAUSD de realidad está ahorrando dinero en el largo plazo en la cárcel de los docentes, sus sucedáneos, y todos los de su bolsillo los costos de TI recupera de inmediato , whene que obliga a estos buenos maestros de la antigüedad. Nos aseguraron que iban a ver en esto ...

Y, por supuesto, ¿por qué debería estar preocupado el público, si se les dice por los medios que marcha en el paso de bloqueo con el LAUSD que se trata de los costes de tramitación de "mala conducta maestro" y no una estafa para deshacerse de los maestros de la antigüedad, por lo que la distrito puede ahorrar dinero.

No hay manera de LAUSD o el Auditor de California podría salirse con esta calumnia sin la cooperación completa de la corriente principal y los medios de comunicación pública que se niega a informar de lo que realmente está pasando y por qué.

Si tiene cualquier duda, Los Angeles Times LAUSD línea del partido el artículo de reportero simplemente lread Howard Blume sobre este reciente auditoría estatal que incuestionablemente loros posición del LAUSD que esto es sólo un mal comportamiento profesor:

L. A. Unificado tiene problemas persistentes resolviendo así las alegaciones de mala conducta del profesor

¿Cree que es una coincidencia que cada vez que se menciona la cuestión de la falta de maestros que una imagen de maestro pervertido de Mark Berndt es arrastrada hacia fuera. Podría ser por eso un elemento de la demanda colectiva contra Rafe Esquith LAUSD es la difamación ... y otra es la discriminación por edad?

And for certain there's another reason why this audit will never rise above room temperature. To figure it for yourself, just look at the Rafe Esquith case. Here's a class action suit with something like 2,000 teachers signed on. Potentially a billion dollar suit. That number alone would financially cripple the district. But let's set that aside for the moment and just consider what might happen if the audit found the district in violation. That would open the door for every wrongly removed teacher past and present to sue LAUSD as it should be sued along its cohort,a fake union we know as UTLA and along with the union's traitorous retained law firm,Trystad, Schwab & Trygstad. Even as cowardly as the district's teaching staff has been on this issue, that may change if the district was held accountable for its practices. So just considering the potential outcomes, does anyone really think the state auditors would find violations which would cripple the district and possibly send administrators past and present to state prisons? Now what's the likelihood of that? Would any elected official, local or state level go along with that? Think good old boys and girls like Gil Garcetti, Kamala Harris, Jerry Brown. You think any of those fakers are ever going to choose justice over the system and their careers? If you say "yes" to any of this, you must think that professional wrestling is real too.
