I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT SHE'S ONLY BEEN 2 YEARS IN THE CITY OF LYNWOOD AND SHE ALREADY MAKES EDUCATIONAL AND BUDGET DECISION THAT PERTAIN TO OUR CHILDREN. ARE THERE ANY REGULATIONS PERTAINING TO THE NUMBER OF YEARS SOMEONE MUST LIVE IN THE CITY???

THIS IS THE WORST BOARD OF EDUCUATION EVER!!!! THIS IS THE SAME GROUPS OF "LATINOS" WHO NEGLECTED OUR CHILDREN BY NOT NAMING THE NEW MIDDLE SCHOOL AFTER OUR GREATEST LEADER CESAR E. CHAVEZ. BY NOT NAMING THE SCHOOL AFTER OUR GREATEST LATINO LEADER, THEY GAVE A SLAP ON THE FACE TO THOSE 92% STUDENT LATINO POPULATION.
SHAME ON YOU!!!

First of all if she were teaching in Lynwood, "she probably would not be a school board member" Right? Conflict of Interest!

I understand that her kids are all adults so why would they be in the school district. Duh!

I actually admire individuals that could live in better neighborhood, but choose to stay in Lynwood and try to make a difference. I'm sure that the Rodriguez family is financially stable and could live in any other area.

For your information we WILL have a Cesar Chavez school, on Martin Luther King Blvd. The vote was in November 2004 and it was a 4 to 1 vote.

These school members are not only representing the Latinos in Lynwood, they are representing everyone in our school district. So Please, no more racial comments. Let's not discuss race.

That's bogus, they moved in to Lynwood because they were being investigated. The paper clearly says ,that they moved to Lynwood 3 years ago duh!!!!

This Can't Be Racism. It' Latinos Talking About Latinos. Plus, she did to Martina What they were gonna ddo to her husband. It was Martina's turn. She turned her back on her. We shouldn't bee surprised that she gave her back to our hero Cesar Chaves. They Did name the school but only after they felt pressure from the community.

She would've never made it in Cerritos as a board member..... they are in Lynwood now because they see their political carrers as an extra income, once we kick them out they will leave Lynwood in a FLASH!

This Board is horrendous. I am a teacher (not an emergency substitute teacher, but a real teacher) and it makes me sad to see that the district is being guided in the wrong direction. People who've worked for years all of a sudden feel threatened. Why is it that new comers are jeopardizing the future of our children?

If you are a good teacher teaching our children, than you dont have anything to worry about! If your so worried about your jobs as teachers than maybee there is a reason to be worried. Maybee your free ride is finaly coming to an end as it should have been along time ago!

Let me explain something to all of you. I know we are finaly going for the betterment of lynwood. All of those teachers worried probably should be. You say we are moving in the wronge direction, when were we ever in the right direction? We have had more out of place personel in our education system than one can imagine, but i guess when you care more about your pay check than the kids, thats probably how you would think! And to say that the board members our in it for the money, Im sure anyone can survive with a 300.00 dollar a month paycheck. DUMB. Know your facts before you speek a bunch of non-sence.

So what if the Rodriguez Family moved here from Cerritos. We should be grateful that they care enough about this community to make a difference and not a profit. And for your information, Mayor Rodriguez may have just moved to Lynwood 4 1/2 years ago, but he has been a reliable, stable and honest businessman in this city for almost 15 years. Can any of you say the same.

And as far as all this whining and crying about the "Latinos" this and the "African Americans" that get over it! Ask yourselves why you moved INTO this country and the answer will probably be to make a better life for your family. Stop separating yourselves as a race, it only points the racism in your direction.

Also, have any of you said anything about the kids? Don't they deserve the best education they can get? If Mrs. Rodriguez can bring new ideas for faculty and staff into the horrible Lynwood School District than you should simply say "Thank You" and keep the negative comments to yourself!

We live in a democratic country and when we witness the ineptness in our representavives we have a right to SAY IT... regarding the race card...this is usually brought on by people who feel inferior and are afraid to see the truth.... WE NEED TO SAY THE INEPTNESS WITHOUT REGARD TO RACE...BUT IF THE SHOE FITS

I DON'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT THE SCHOOL DISTRICT OR WHAT GOES ON IN THERE. BUT ONE THING IS VERY CLEAR: THE SCHOOL DISTRICT SEEMS TO BE IN THE MIDDLE OF A BATTLE OF WHICH RACE IS BEST. NEITHER IS BEST. THEY ARE BOTH THE SAME. BOTH ARE MINORITIES FIGHTING MINORITIES. THE FUNNY THING HERE IS THAT BOTH MINORITIES ARE THE MAJORITIES. WITH ALL DUE RESPECT TO BOTH PARTIES: GET OVER THE RACE CARD, YOU GUYS ARE WORST THAN WHITE BOY NEO NAZIS!

BOTH ARE SUPPOSE TO BE WORKING FOR THE DISTRICT AND FOR THE CHILDREN. THEN START SOLVING YOUR ISSUES. YOU GUYS ARE SETTING A BAD EXAMPLE FOR OUR CHILDREN. THERE'S ONLY ONE RACE: THE HUMAN RACE. SO GET OVER IT.

Mrs.Rodriguez your are right the real organization of the board doesnt have to be tradicional, but all last year i heard u mentioned you talking to your freinds that what Leticia did to your husband was not right. What Solache did to Martina is not right either.

I agree, that's not right. She should've gotten her chance.

To all of the above race comments. There are actually two races the decent and the indecent. Those that are working hard and contributing positively to our city and those that are working against the benefit of the city and it's citizens.
Our city is a group consisting of many. Anyone who wants to make every issue a race issue should be viewed as devisive. When everyone is judged by the merits of their contribution, race is irrelivent!
By documenting all employees job performances wage increases, promotions or dismissals can be attained according to these criteria only. When race is in question at every turn it is a management failure. Maybe clear job descriptions would help.

NOW THAT GUADALUPE IS THE NEW SCOOL BOARD PRESIDENT,
i HOPE SHE PUTS THE RESPOSIBLE EMPLOYEES TO DO REAL WORK.
IF ANY OF YOU ARE PARENTS WITH CHILDREN IN LYNWOOD MIDDLE SCHOOL JUST TAKE A LITTLE TOUR IN THE SCHOOL AND YOU WILLL FIND OUT THE CONDITIONS YOUR CHILDREN LIVE IN.
I SAY LIVE IN BECAUSE THE POOR KIDS SPEND MOST OF THEIR YOUNG LIVES IN THAT !2%#$#@&? HALL. CALL IT YOUR TAX AT WORK!!
THE GIRLS AND BOYS RESTROOMS ARE A MESS, WE SHOULD DO WHAT IS DONE TO A BAD LAND LORD, CONFINED THE RESPONSIBLE ONE TO LIVE IN THERE TILL IS CLEAN.
I TALKED WITH A BOY ABOUT 12 YEARS OLD AND SAID "IT'S TIME SOME BODY STANS UP FOR WHAT IS RIGHT BECAUSE IT'S TOO DURTY WORST THEN A THIRD WOULD COUNTRY SCHOOL

Let me tell you the secret to solve your problem: Take a picture of the bathrooms, and give it to Lynwood Watch, I'm sure they'll gladly put it on the web for you. Then everyone will know what you're talking about. Now, can Lynwood Watch please do a section that's specifically for the School District? We have issues of our own that a lot of times don't have anything to do with the City's problems.

THANKS FOR THE ADVICE, PICTURES HAVE BEEN TAKEN.
I AM IN THE PROCESS TO POST THEM.
I AGREE TO HAVE A SCHOOL SITE TO POST COMENTS THE EDUCATION AND SAFETY OF OUR CHILDREN SHOULD BE A PRIORITY,
A CONCERNED PARENT!
