This is not true, there was a hand full of teacher in acting like hoodlums and circus animals, out of over 1000 teachers employeed at LUSD. Many of the teachers were led to believe this was in regards to negotiating and contractural issues. Its funny how supposidly educators can be led by the nose based upon a half truth. When some of us are asking why the children are failing, its because there are inadequate teachers and the fact that man teachers just don't care. There are numerous caring teachers who try and give there all but others who are just people with the bare requirement to be a teachers. If anyone paid attention who who was in the crowd they could plainly see there is just a few who for personal reasons do not like the Superintendent. It even appeared that the Board of Education who helped call out the ------- were plainly embarassed by their actions. What people in there right mind would come out talking about negotiation issues when the meeting was not pertinent to those issues they were talking about, but then again we have someone making a specticle of themself and having others looking even moe foolish by screaching fire the Superintendent. That person does not pay the Superintendent's salary in Lynwood and Counseled himself right into divorce court, well, well, well. If we must attack people on their personal lives we should look into the mirror before we start attacking others. This comment could go on and on but lets asks for and tell the truth which has not been done on the part of the so called educators calling for the Superintendent. We should also tell the truth and let it be known that as long as our Superintdent continues to make strides for the children there will always be someone who chooses to ignore the fact that strides are being made. For all of the defunct Educators who say they can do better why are they still here and why do they leave and then beg to come back to LUSD. What you can't make it in other districts and in the field which you hold degrees?

Who ever wrote this comment should do a little proof reading. It does show that a education is an awful thing to waste.

I can't wait for Oscar Espinoza to clean house. Oscar you know that Dr. Lal has to go. Our hopes are with you.

We know that Solache and Morales are indebted to Dr. Lal and that's why they'll defend and stick with him until the end. Chavez is senile and has proven she isn't interested in what benefits the community. I think she forgot why she's even there.

Why hate on progress? As a parent, I am totally happy with the changes that have taken place in the past four years. New schools, higher test scores and teacher evaluations. Keep up the good work!
Grateful Parent,

At least the school board now has 4educated and progressive people not afraid of change.

Look at the city council you have ...

two high school drop-outs
1.Castro
2.Petunia Santillan

You have...
two high school graduates who cannot write a decent paragraph

1.Ramon Rodriguez
2.Aldredo Flores

And finally...
Jose Antonio "Tony" Martinez
a college drop-out running Lynwood!
What can we expect? The school board will be good. The city will fall apart!

Did you see Aide Castro kissing ass to Shawn Powell Furillo at the last Council meeting. They were there together giving an award to the leader of the recall Evelia Hernendez.

The new elected's were spotted at the blockwatch captains meeting on tuesday.

Quote from Aide Castro, "I know I'm young and have never had a real job before but I will do my best"

Quote from Sal Alatorre, "I will do my best to make sure I don't embarass the city of Lynwood and hide my criminal record"

Solache,
Stop defending yourself pretending to be a parent. That's pathetic.

Aide, I just heard a rumor about you and it better not be true.

We heard the DA has requested a copy of the files where Aide received the $40,000 from the City. Aide is now under a DA investigation. Here in Lynwood there is a first for everything. Aide will be the first Council person that comes on to the Council already under investigation. How sad.

Screechin' in Lynwood said...

Underqualified teachers? Let's talk about a superintendent that has a doctorate from a university on the lowest tier of the U.S. World and News Report's latest rankings of universities. Nova Southeastern University has a little over 5,000 students and mainly deals in online degrees. This is where the superintendent is an alumnus. Was it an online degree?

The teachers in LUSD come from UCLA, USC, UCSB, UCI, and first and second tier universities around the country. I know no one that begged to come back to Lynwood. I do know at least one teacher that came back from one of the top 100 high schools in the country and brought with him a top rated science curriculum to our district. This same teacher was one of the authors of the California State Science Framework Addendum. And if I'm correct holds all the necessary course work and experience to be teaching in that field while the teacher holds credentials and degrees in other academic areas.

Is the author of the first comment a sexist? "Man" teachers don't care? Evidently the teacher from Lynwood High named as California Teacher of the year, cares! And that writer would be hard pressed to prove to me that our MEN teachers are not caring teachers. Does the writer believe that the superintendent is a caring man? Is the principal that caused the emotional distress demonstrated by the students ejected from Firebaugh High to LHS who addressed the board last week a caring man of the district?

Ask the superintendent where these 1000 teachers are. There aren't 1000 teachers, there aren't even 900 according to the public record. Eight computers in every classroom? That's what Dr. Lal told the news. Where are they? Are there eight new computers in your child's classroom. I don't know of that many in any classroom. I am aware of the stacks of computers still held in the district's warehouse.

Since the writer of the first comment wants to appear under-educated, but is obviously someone of higher education, read the contract of Dr. Lal, there are several places in which his contract affects working conditions of the teachers. If the teachers are to be evaluated and held accountable, why is the superintendent and associate and assistant superintendents not evaluated and held accountable?

Test scores didn't go up because of the superintendent. It was because a teacher working hard with the children of LUSD taught those kids. You were educated well enough to fictiously compose an essay and make it appear or try to make it appear that you are less than what you are. YOU HAVE A TEACHER TO THANK FOR THAT NOT A SUPERINTENDENT.

All teachers were told it was about Superintendant's malfeasance, NOT contract issues. Post looks like written by LUSD bureaucrat looking to protect fat cat job. Many did not show for fear of retaliation and losing job since many are not tenured.
Defunct educators? Divorce Court? What are you really talking about? Stick to the issue - malfeasance in office. No bid contracts, nepotism, favoritism!

C'mon, c'mon whats the rumor? Speak up. Lynwood has the right to know who is running the City.
I'm sure it is, that she is being investigated by the D.A.. That $40,000 deal will not go away. Her days are counted.

Obviuosly, that former K-Mart security guard turned Wave Newspaper Reporter "Marci" crater face Santana without educational or professional credentials can't count. There was no more than 35 people at the board meeting.

Aide has nothing to worry about. The CDBG commission does not approve those loans. Aide did not apply for a loan her husband did and paid it back. Ms. Santana better do her research as an ethical reporter should do. The DA is investigating Aide because Jim and Alex are trying to get her in trouble. I bet the DA will be angry to find out they wasted their time. The DA is requesting the file on Aide's loan. What file? Aide never took a loan. HAHAHAHAHAHA

You loose try again

Anonymous said...

Yeah tell that K-Mart secuirty guard turned Wave Newspaper Reporter with NO cedentials AKA crater face "Marci" Santana to get her facts straight!

Anonymous said...

Everyone knows that it was Aide's husband that applied. We also know that Aide (while on the CDBG) commission voted to increase the amount from $20,000 to $40,000.

The bottom line is that Aide benefited from this $40,000. Let me add, that I understand that she was the only one that got $40,000 all the other applicants only got $20,000.

The other interesting part is that this all happened while Fernando was the Mayor. Let me also add that those three homes were purchased by Fernando family.

I bet you didn't know that Fernando's sister-in-law also lives in one of those homes and received a grant.

Yeah! I think it's a joke that Aide now wants to be ethical after all her lies, deception and corruption.

She lied, cheated and stole her way to the Lynwood City Council and she will not change!

Those people are Mark Kudler, Emilio Franco, Fat billy Martinez (you are still a hog, pinche prieto even after you gastro bypass surgery that removed some of your lard)Arnoldo Beltran el otro puerco and the list goes on! This has already been reported to the authoritites. They funneled cash contribution to Christopher Robles and then gave it to you. I know that good will prevail and the authorities will continue to investigate your corruption. Your friends and accomplices Jose Antonio "Tony" Martinez and Alfredo Flores will come down with you too!

Oh and you criminal rat pack that includes you felon friend an co-conspirator Silvia Ortiz too!

We all know Sylvia Ortiz the felon is a worthless piece of s.... She does this for money because no one else will give her a job. It's not complicated at all.

Like she said at the last council meeting "it's not personal, you know it's all about money"

So just shut your mouth!

Mr Blogger please post the 460's so these people can shup up. You can tell these people are just bull shitting because if they really had the reports they wouldn't be saying what they are saying. On and by the way using political action committees is legal you idiots. It's actually easier for when more than one campaign is involved.

Billie's project approved since 2005 by Ramon, Maria, and Fernando. Mark Kudler's project approved in the same year by the same people, and the project is almost completed. El Farallon will only happen if he get's his liquor license, and that's up to the state. He already has everything he needs for his nightclub if he gets the liquor license. So all you guys are full of it. Get your story straight before you open your mouth Jim. Billboards, Alameda Triangle, and nightclub were all done deals.

Your dead wrong. On the Billy Martinez project the city needs give millions to clean up the contamination and the city needs to give millions to buy the property and give more millions to build.

On the Mark Kudler thing...Mark Kudler does not own the land so he needs to make sure he gets to own the land which is why item # 11 was on the agenda the last meeting. He want the city to buy the land then sell it.

And the Emilio Franco El Farallon nightclub CUP has expired the city council must vote on this again

So stop telling your lies!!!

Keep your eyes open Lynwood the corruption will continue and Aide Castro and her puppets Flores and Martinez will keep it going they owe it to them.

You mean it's easier to hide money and to deny that you approved the lies you print on literature with a committee you don't "control". Like Aide and her puppets Flores and Martinez are doing all along.
