LAUSD's TARGETING OF OLDER TEACHERS- CLEARLY CRIMINAL

Perjury.jpg(Mensaje se repite en Español)

If you finally want to stop the criminal behavior still being engaged in by those running the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) and other purposefully sabotaged public school districts like it around the country, then I think you will need sections of the California Penal Code and the belated enforcement of criminal felonies described therein against LAUSD administrators to accomplish this. No, LAUSD Board member Dr. Ref Rodriguez is not an isolated case of illegal behavior at LAUSD. In fact, he is small potatoes, when compared with other felonious actions being systematically carried out throughout the District.

Presently there is a critical shortage of teachers across the United States that remains a premeditated and self-inflicted wound created as a mere first step in the privatization and charterization of public school districts for profit. Locally in what seems to be LAUSD's never ending battle against and ultimate removal of more expensive high seniority teachers for the sole "crime" of being at the top of the salary scale, it has been difficult- if not impossible- in most cases for these targeted teachers to prove their innocence, since it most often comes down to their word against those of LAUSD administrators in front of a judicial system that bends over backwards to rubber stamp the clearly illegal and continuing reprehensible behavior of LAUSD and districts like it around the state and around the country.

Yes, in these venues like the Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH) or local Superior Court, the poor targeted teacher has to defend themselves in a venue predisposed-if not outright controlled by LAUSD- where the deck is clearly stacked against them and they are rather presumed guilty instead of innocent, which should have been their constitutional right under law.

In such a situation I would argue that the best defense one should use is a good offense, especially since LAUSD administrators have made it easy by not only having made no attempt to hide their illegal actions and biasees, but have further engaged in openly criminal behavior by fabricating or destroying "evidence" to substantiate their trumped up charges against these completely innocent expensive high seniority teachers.

What makes this criminal behavior relatively easy to prove is that the administrators seem to have no problem admitting under oath that they have engaged in this behavior. In my own case, then Assistant Principal Rene Martinez when asked under oath at a deposition, after having solicited and submitted only negative letters from my students, "Did any of Mr. Isenberg's students write positive letters about him." Mr. Martinez said, "Yes." When subsequently asked what he did with them, his response was, "I destroyed them." Then my attorney asked him, "Why did you do that." Martinez's respond was, "They didn't go toward the charges against him." My attorney then said, "You mean exculpatory evidence is not admissible?" to which Martinez responded, "What's that."

The same obfuscation of truth was engaged in by the Office of Inspector General's Mr. Johnson, who had no explanation as to why my whistleblower complaint about students being graduated and given valid diplomas even though they had low elementary school Math and English levels was not looked at for months after I filed it. And then when it was finally investigated, this task was given to Principal Janet Seary and her immediate superior Jan Davis, who were themselves both the subjects of my whistleblower complaint. Outrageous?

Add to this Jan Davis' signing of documents memorializing punishments to subsequently be meeted out to me weeks before the due process hearings took place to decide whether I should be punished. This is only the tip of the iceberg of systematic and easily verifiable criminal behavior that as of this writing has gone unaddressed, while I and literally thousands of other senior teachers remain fired and blacklisted from the teaching profession.

Penal Code 132

"Every person who upon any trial, proceeding, inquiry, or investigation whatever, authorized or permitted by law, offers in evidence, as genuine or true, any book, paper, document, record, or other instrument in writing, knowing the same to have been forged or fraudulently altered or ante-dated, is guilty of felony."

Penal Code 135

"A person who, knowing that any book, paper, record, instrument in writing, digital image, video recording owned by another, or other matter or thing, is about to be produced in evidence upon a trial, inquiry, or investigation, authorized by law, willfully destroys, erases, or conceals the same, with the intent to prevent it or its content from being produced, is guilty of a misdemeanor."

Penal Code 141(a)

If you or someone you know has been targeted and are in the process of being dismissed and need legal defense, get in touch:

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. Hungry for more information about crusading educators going against the grain to do what's right for teachers, unions, communities, and children? Check out some more blogs below:

Si finalmente quiere detener la conducta criminal que sigue siendo involucrada por aquellos que manejan el Distrito Escolar Unificado de Los Ángeles (LAUSD) y otros distritos escolares públicos saboteados como en todo el país, entonces creo que necesitará secciones del Código Penal de California y la aplicación tardía de delitos criminales contra los administradores del LAUSD para lograr esto. No, el Dr. Ref Rodríguez, miembro de la junta del LAUSD, no es un caso aislado. De hecho, se trata de papas pequeñas, en comparación con otras acciones criminales que se llevan a cabo sistemáticamente en todo el Distrito.
Actualmente hay una escasez crítica de maestros en los Estados Unidos que sigue siendo una herida premeditada y autoinfligida creada como un primer paso en la privatización y la fletación de los distritos escolares públicos con fines de lucro. Localmente en lo que parece ser la interminable batalla de LAUSD contra y la remoción definitiva de maestros de alta antigüedad más caros por el único "delito" de estar en la parte superior de la escala de sueldos, ha sido difícil, si no imposible, en la mayoría de los casos para estos dirigido a los profesores para demostrar su inocencia, ya que a menudo se reduce a su palabra contra la de los administradores del LAUSD.

Y en lugares como la Oficina de Audiencias Administrativas (OAH, por sus siglas en inglés) o el Tribunal Superior local, el maestro pobre tiene que defenderse en un lugar donde la baraja está claramente apilada contra ellos y se presume más culpable que inocente, derecho constitucional bajo la ley.

En tal situación, yo diría que la mejor defensa es una buena ofensa, especialmente desde que los administradores del LAUSD lo han hecho fácil no sólo no haber hecho ningún intento de ocultar sus acciones ilegales y sesgos, sino que además han participado en un comportamiento abiertamente criminal fabricando " evidencia "para corroborar sus acusaciones falsas contra estos maestros.

Lo que hace que este comportamiento criminal sea relativamente fácil de probar es que los administradores parecen no tener ningún problema para admitir bajo juramento que se han involucrado en este comportamiento. En mi propio caso, el subdirector René Martínez cuando se le preguntó bajo juramento en una declaración, después de haber enviado sólo cartas negativas de mis estudiantes, "¿Alguno de los estudiantes del Sr. Isenberg escribir cartas positivas sobre él. El señor Martínez dijo: "Sí". Cuando se le preguntó lo que hizo con ellos, su respuesta fue: "Los destruí". Entonces mi abogado le preguntó: "¿Por qué hiciste eso?" La respuesta de Martínez fue: "No se dirigieron a los cargos en su contra". Entonces mi abogado dijo: -¿Quiere decir que la evidencia exculpatoria no es admisible? Martínez respondió: "¿Qué es eso?".

La misma ofuscación de la verdad fue ocupada por Xavier Johnson, de la Oficina del Inspector General, quien no tenía ninguna explicación de por qué mi queja de denunciante acerca de los estudiantes graduados y con diplomas válidos aunque tuvieran niveles bajos de Matemáticas e Inglés en la escuela primaria no fue vista durante meses después de que lo archivara. Y cuando se investigó, Johnson dio esta tarea a la directora Janet Seary ya su superior inmediato, Jan Davis, que eran los dos sujetos de mi denuncia. ¿Indignante?

Añada a esta firma de Jan Davis de los documentos conmemorativos de los castigos que se me entregarán semanas antes de las audiencias tuvo lugar para decidir si debería ser castigado y usted tiene sólo la punta del iceberg de sistemática y fácilmente verificable comportamiento criminal que a partir de este la escritura no ha sido abordada, mientras yo permanezco despedido y la lista negra de la profesión docente.

LAUSD has harmed the lives of so many good teachers with their discrimination against older teachers. They are full of so much fraud, please let me know when there will be a class action law suit.

Given the complicity of various levels of government and unions in this and other illegal actions taken against teachers and other and the deep pockets filled with taxpayers money entities like LAUSD have to fight anybody foolish enough to take them on, it is unlikely that a class action or any other action will be sustained by state or federal courts that know if they decide against LAUSD, they will have to clean up the mess with a more than likely LAUSD bankruptcy, which is why LAUSD targeted expensive high seniority teachers in the first place.

A non-profit supported by small contributions from the super majority that now knows this is going on might have a chance, if they learn to use the internet to organize, raise money, and act in a manner that the mainstream media now never reports.

Ah Lenny. How right you are. I was only 58, but after five decades of teaching I knew a thing or two.
It didn't matter that I was the NYS 'Educator of Excellence", when they came for me. It did not matter that I was being studied & filmed by Harvard and the LRDC (from The University. of Pittsburgh's LRDC) ,because I was chosen as the cohort for the Pew research on THE PRINCIPLES OF LEARNING. My students had been a the top of NYC tests, for years, and they wanted to know how I did that.

They told me, at the end of the research that I was one of 6 teachers of the 20,000 studied who met every principle of learning in a unique way. Yeah took my work around the country, but I was, by then, in a rubber room facing false allegations our forth but he superintendent who used MY success to demonstrate her excellence, not mine.

When they came after me, they came after tens of thousands of experienced professionals , and so this was the result in NYC.--"The Inconvenient Truth Behind Waiting for
