Nick Melvoin’s plans for an exclusive new middle school include displacing children with special education needs from Fairfax High School.
The School Performance Framework (SPF) written by those who would like to privatize public education has been revoked by the LAUSD board with a 6-1 vote.
I stood near the nine school buses watching the teachers help the special education students climb the stairs and step between the curb and the bus door. These are the ‘short’ buses that have been the butt of jokes for decades. My heart ached. Where are all these nine buses of students going to go if this middle school pushes them out?
The information age should have held truth to power. Instead, politicians from a school board member to the president just create new realities.
Nick Melvoin has put the interests of the charter school industry over the LAUSD students he is supposed to represent. Should this disqualify him from reviewing district employees?
While the charter school industry continues to push for a Yelp-like rating of schools, LAUSD parents support the effort to fight back.
Board Member Nick Melvoin got caught manipulating data for the benefit of the charter school industry. He now oversees the LAUSD’s data-driven efforts.
In the majority, charter school supporters had little respect for the minority. With the roles switched, Nick Melvoin demands collaboration.
Instead of providing parents with information, The School Performance Framework (SPF) was doctored to serve the needs of the charter school industry.
The “Board Meeting Accessibility to the Public” proposal would move start times of LAUSD Board meetings so that more parents could attend.
