notyetLAUSD is insulted by the 99% #occupyLAUSD movement. With current Superintendent John Deasy seeking “$200 million in the first three to five years, that is correct. And then I want $500 million overall.” Who do you think is going to pay that kind of money? The top 1%...duh. Do you think the top 1% will donate money if there are calls for the removal of corporate money and influence. Do you think the top 1% are going to give money if they can't direct how it’s spent, we’re not expecting any donations here.
Already there is a clear role the top 1% has played in shaping current LAUSD policy, look no further than LAUSD sponsors Walton Family, Wasserman and Broad who pay the salary of multiple high level district leaders who have transitioned from Billionaire Boy’s club salary to LAUSD salaries. Even the Superintendent is a product of the 1% Broad’s Superintendent School. The 1% have already seen a huge return on investment in their work with LAUSD, we cannot reach out private money fund-raising efforts unless we continue to court them. We are going to need the top 1% business savvy if we are to start our “elect-to-work” agreements, they are the best at using such agreements.
If we don’t do what the top 1% say, we won’t be able to hire a librarian. Are you , the 99%, saying you hate librarians?
notyetLAUSD would ask that the protesters simply go home. Better yet, we would like the 99% to come back with an apology for offending the 1% and our current Superintendent.
In solidarity to those who can fund our school's recovery, notyetLAUSD
P.S. 1%'s please excuse the protesters we would really like your money, and more importantly your leadership. Some of us here do value$$$ your work.
