United Way & Families That Can and “other community organizations” are sponsoring a debate between the candidates for school board in LAUSD Board District Four tonight.
United Way should not be confused with its former self, The Community Chest - which was a alliance of The Red Cross and PTA and Boys and Girls Clubs, The Salvation Army, Goodwill Industries, etc.
That was then….
The United Way of Greater Los Angeles is now a covertly political action organization focused on community organizing rather than charitable fundraising work …and has been firmly allied with Mayor Tony, The Chamber of Commerce and ®eform, Inc. for the past eight years.
Families That Can is a statewide organization of charter school families united to hold our elected leaders accountable for ensuring every child has access to a high-quality (ie: charter school) public education.
Lord (or Mayor Tony) knows who “other community organizations” are …but CalCharters.org is their website!
Charter schools and ®eform Inc are supporting candidate Kate Anderson.
Tonight's debate should be incumbent Steve Zimmer – who has advocated for increased accountability from charter schools – in The Lions Den.
That said, 4LAKids refers the reader to the object lesson of Chapter 6 of The Book Daniel – and the adventures of Daniel in the Lions Den.
