Scandal in LA Schools

September 3, 2014

Tags: Of IPads, fiascos, school spending

See: LAEP NewsBlast 9.3.14, It' tells the story of what amounts to insider trading in school materials and technology. This, an iceberg's tip, is a story that, with variations is pertinent to schools across the country. School materials are costly, adoptions are ripe for exploitation. The system as we have it doesn't work. Our schools are filled with expensive books and programs that have failed our children. Why? Because of the big money involved. Can the system be fixed? Easily. Just stop the one-publisher-provides all huge adoptions. Why can't each teacher in a school district chose his/her own materials from an approved list?
