Antonovich and education

As you move to rid the Juvenile Court Schools of their mission to teach the probation students, you need to actually come over to the camps and halls and see that education by qualified teachers is taking place.

I am just not sure that is what really interests you.

You terminate the services of LACOE board member Sophia Waugh, who has been an active participant in the process of the Juvenile Court Schools student education and has gotten it right, but you extend the services of Chief Probation Officer Taylor, who after two years gets four months to write a plan for probation to do their job and four years to implement it, and has not gotten it right.

Right! That is why he got the extension.

The Department of Justice has been all over both Probation and Juvenile Court Schools. Education received substantial compliance from the Department of Justice. Has Probation?

With this backdrop, it makes the citizens of this county wonder what is your real motivation by your decisions. We know it has nothing to do with the students, so we wonder just what it is!

Since I am a voter and taxpayer in your district, will you please advise me of your plan of action?
