Given the present iPAD scandal that in reality is just the latest incarnation of a long list of corrupt practices at the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), one can only hope that finally the curtain will be opened on illegal practices to expose a long history of enumerable improper actions taken by LAUSD Superintendent John Deasy, administration, and his immediate predecessors Ramon Cortines, David Brewer, and Roy Romer. Hopefully, this will finally lead to an independent and in depth audit of both financial and pedagogic decisions they have taken with rather questionable legal motives.
What follows in this article are just a few of these corrupt actions that such an independent investigative audit might be well advised to look into. Feel free in the comment section to augment this list. Maybe this latest iPad scandal with Pearson Education and Apple will final cause a light to be shined on Deasy and his predecessors' shenanigans, so that critically necessary and long overdue real reformation of endemically corrupt LAUSD can finally be implemented. It is not enough for Deasy to lose his job, if all that takes place is his replacement by another over paid public school privatization advocate, whose greatest loyalty is to Broad, Gates, Walton, and the other foundations seeking to privatize public education for profit and not the public school student, teachers, and their families.
