It's being run by leftwing extremists these days. Tuck and Tape over math and science. Listen to this nutcase from LA. There is a reason why most liberals hate the freedom of choice.

Teachers Unions Are Why More Parents Want School Choice​

In August 2021, after area schools had been closed for at least a year, the head of United Teachers Los Angeles, Cecily Myart-Cruz, infamously ruminated on the unique learning experience school closings had given L.A. students.

"There's no such thing as learning loss," she told Los Angeles magazine. “It's OK that our babies may not have learned all their times tables. They learned resilience. They learned survival. They learned critical-thinking skills. They know the difference between a riot and a protest. They know the words insurrection and coup."

Parents were also getting an education. Shortly thereafter, the LA United School District reported losing more than 27,000 students from enrollment numbers during the 2020-21 school year, exacerbating a slow decline over decades.

“The pace of the decline has accelerated since the pandemic, a phenomenon officials struggle to explain,” The Los Angeles Times reported at the time.

This is laughable. Allow me to explain.

Los Angeles and the country’s other major liberal urban and suburban areas, in alliance with teachers unions, perpetrated what The Atlantic recently called “the biggest disruption in the history of American education.”

Parents understood who was responsible. When major teachers unions and public schools acted like public education was nonessential, many parents took them at their word and found education elsewhere.

An opinion piece? My god, you’ve scraped rock bottom.

LOL... Typical liberal authoritarian... How dare someone have an opinion.

Let me ask. Is losing 27,000 students in a district an opinion? Is homeschooling nearly quadrupling an opinion?
