LAUSD Superintendent of Schools (Supt. John Deasy)

LAUSD School Board (Ms. Monica Garcia)

LAUSD School Board (Ms. Tamar Galatzan)

LAUSD School Board (Mr. Steve Zimmer)

LAUSD School Board (Mr. Bennett Kayser)

LAUSD School Board (Ms. Nury Martinez)

LAUSD School Board (Mr. Richard Vladovic)

LAUSD School Board (Ms. Marguerite Poindexter LaMotte)

Regular meetings of the Los Angeles Unified School District Board of Education (or “LAUSD School Board”) occur at 1:00 p.m. on Tuesdays. This start time is not public friendly as many stakeholders within LAUSD are working or attending classes.

A more convenient time for LAUSD School Board participation would promote public engagement.

We, the undersigned, petition to change the time of regular meetings of the LAUSD School Board from the daytime to 6:30 p.m. so that parents, teachers and other school employees, students and community members can attend and more fully participate in important decisions about the education of our children. We live and/or work within the Los Angeles Unified School District; we are impacted by its decision-making and want to be able to more fully participate in its Board of Education regular meetings.

That makes sense. However, LAUSD and some members of the board, particularly the corrupt and corpulent presudent, are not inclined to use logic, much less employ ethics when deciding the fate of our children, tax dollars and city resources. This self-serving collection of EducRAT$ are not interested in what parents, students and teachers have to say. Have you ever watched a board meeting the can be very emotional and unpredictable because people are upset, angry and no matter what they say they will. Continue to be ignored.
Trying ti reason with them is frustrating and futile. They will only recnsider the latest travesty if a celevrity serenades them or bribes them with invitations to movie priemeir. And even then,they will go back on thier promise. With so many teachersbe pushed over the edge while LAUSD hudes billions from the budget abd hires more nonessential overoaid suits to a bloated hive of non educators sabotaging schools , 6:30 woould see many angry teachers with a rant to unleash all over these white chalk criminals. Of course parents will be all over that too. And just in tome for the evening news.m
I am behind it, I will sign it but until we show these people whose boss we are going to play by their rules,
