DAILY NEWS REPORTER BARBARA JONES "REWARDED" FOR NOT DEVIATING FROM LAUSD PARTY LINE

(Mensaje se repite en Español) It's hard to get angry at the American public for doing nothing to stop the dismantling and privatization of public education for profit and the further dumbing down of the electorate, when freedom of the press- and the 4th estate that is supposed to insure it- has already been completely dismantled. If you had any doubt about the press being completely co-opted, the hiring of Daily News Reporter Barbara Jones as Chief of Staff for Los Angeles Unified School Board Member Tamar Galatzan should finally put that to rest.

LAUSD SUPERINTENDENT DEASY CONTINUES TO LIE WHILE KNBC LETS HIM GET AWAY WITH IT

Smiling John Deasy.jpg
(Mensaje se repite en Español) The following is a crystal clear example of how a mainstream local news media is able to document LAUSD Superintendent John Deasy in an outright lie then do nothing to confront Deasy or anybody else at LAUSD with the lie(s). The first video below is of an interview that KNBC Conan Nolan did with Superintendent John Deasy on February 13, 2012, where Deasy justifies giving alleged teacher child molester Mark Berndt $56,000, because according to Deasy, Reporter Nolan, and a supposed 2009 L.A. Times survey, 50% of teachers get their jobs back at the Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH). Deasy didn't want to take the chance that Berndt would get his job back. The second video completely contradicts this and was done by Nolan's reporter colleague at KNBC Patrick Healy on March 13, 2012, which says that in 2011, LAUSD got rid of 853 teachers and not one got their job back and only two went to the OAH and both lost. Both statements cannot be true and yet neither Nolan or Healy or any other news media dares to report the truth about Deasy and LAUSD, even though, given their daily access to LAUSD, they undoubtedly know the truth.

(Mensaje se repite en Español) (For a national view of public education reform see the end of this blog post) Within the past year, LAUSD has terminated 853 teachers, and only a fraction are pursuing appeals. Records show that since 2009, no fired teacher who went through the entire appeals process to a ruling has been reinstated.
