The Greater Echo Park Elysian Neighborhood will consider a motion on March 25 at 7:00 at theRead More Cisneros Learning Academy to support public schools by encouraging the Los Angeles Unified School Dist. to agree to these demands as well as restoring arts programs, nurses, counselors, and attendance workers as well as lowering class size to pre-recession levels.
Books have gone missing from LAUSD libraries that are not staffed with professional librarians, a union rep says.

They're too busy buying iPads at RETAIL prices!!!!When there's a sub, they automatically watch aRead More dvd! My kid could learn MORE at home watching TV than at an LAUSD school. It's so frustrating!!!!!You can't even log onto the Net on a desktop at schools-it's RIDICULOUS!!

As an LAUSD Library Aide since 2000 I have seen a lot of changes. Most of us have been reduced to 3Read More hours a day. A typical day can be up to 6 classes scheduled, primary grades get story time, students come in at the same time to exchange books so they can keep up with the required reading program Accelerated Reader, teachers need guidance to find books which supplement the curriculum, not to mention shelving, putting up monthly displays, etc. We are constantly looking for funding to purchase new books & fun ways to promote the library. It's sad to think about school libraries that have to be closed because there is no Library Aide or Teacher Librarian. I promote the public library daily, but most students do not have the opportunity to go because their parents don't have time to take them. Hopefully things will change so all students may have equal access to the school libraries.

The first elementary school I taught at years ago had a full-time credentialed librarian. She wasRead More wonderful. The library was always in order and open. We had a weekly library visit with our class. If you were studying a topic you could let her know and she would pull a number of grade level books on the subject. She always had featured books on display in the library. They were about holidays, etc. She really made a difference! None of the other schools I taught at had a librarian.

The decision to institute a closed computer assisted education system over an open or semi-openRead More system will keep the cost high and the system rigid. The very model that LAUSD supports. Rather than using Ipads directed to operate with a single source serving system the district should have embraced the benefits of open source computing. The Matrix lives. It is LAUSD.

Tell Father Marco Ortiz at Divine Saviour Catholic Church, 90065 to turn off his noisy amplifiedRead More sound system that blasts from 4 bullhorns tape recorded bells and church music 6 or more times a day every day starting at 7:55AM. Good neighbors keep noise to themselves. Father Marco is not a good neighbor.
