Video: Gov. Brown punishes good schools to help bad ones

July 5, 2013

By Brian Calle

John Phillips explains how Gov. Jerry Brown is taking money from successful districts to redirect it to schools that aren’t performing. It’s wrong and it’s not going to work. The problem is not lack of funding.

    Correct. The problem is not funding. Children need a place to study and do homework in an environment that respects education. Studies show the large cities where results are not up to par with outer areas. These cities now house those of large proportion of welfare single mothers, recent influx of
    poorly educated with elementary years of education only, gangs, entry level workers with limited time and income, etc. This is not adding up to achievement. Perhaps his thinking is that more money will increase achievement. But there are societal factors at play which cause impediment to want to go to higher learning. I think some smaller charter schools, church schools, might help more. These larger public schools just use the money in the wrong manner–obviously. How do those who pay more taxes feel when their money for schools is drained to those who don’t pay these large taxes?

    We can look to other failed liberal states to see the result of these policies- Hello Detroit, Chicago, Wash DC.

    The problem is the admins, some are REALLY good, some awful! LAUSD has plenty that fall into both areas.
