1Last night I went to Green Dot Charter run Locke High School for a candidates' forum with some of the people running for the office of State Superintendent of Public Instruction. Of the 12 candidates for the office Larry Aceves, Karen Blake, Alexia L. Deligianni, Leonard James Martin, Faarax Dahir Sheikh-Noor, and front runner Tom Torlakson did not show up. This was understandable since there were less than 50 people in the audience after a strong email campaign by Parents' Revolution to get parents to show up. For those of us who have taught in inner city schools, we are used to poorly attended back-to-school nights and other school events, because parents have justifiably lost the belief that anybody in LAUSD or government and politics really cares about the terror that they and their children have to deal with on a daily basis.
