The life and times of Wolfstrike in the Los Angeles school system
A lot of people are shocked over the fact two teachers from the same school in the Los Angeles school system (LAUSD) have been arrested for molesting children.
...but i'm not surprised.
The school system ignored an earlier complaint, then after these two schmucks, ...who look alike by-the-way, were arrested, then the LAUSD "fired" the whole staff in the school.
The first guy was allowed , by the school district, to quit , so he's still eligable for pension.
(although i think a felony will cancell that ...unless somone changed it, which is very possible)
The girl who orginally complained is about to sue the citizens of Los Angeles for 15 million dollars.
Ironic, since the citizens of Los Angeles no longer have any control over the school system.
by "fired the staff" the LAUSD is moving them to a new school that hasn't opened yet.
A long time ago , shortly after America was created, we had little red school houses, ...run by the teacher.
if the town didn't like the teacher, they hired someone else.
Most schools were affiliated with churches.
Within a short time in America's early history the school system rivaled any county and reached more of the rural population then any other nation.
Then one day someone showed up and said "let's break these schools into districts. we'll collect more taxes to improve standards, and you can pay me $500,000 per year to make sure the buses are running on time.
America fell for the BS, and there's been a perpetual monetary crisis in the school systems ever since.
You CAN'T ask the public for more money when everything is working properly.
I grew up going to Christian schools, grades 1 to 6.
I KNOW a school system can work , I SAW IT WORK.
The teachers and the administrators ruled the school with an iron fist.
If you started acting stupid they were all over you like Oprah on a baked ham.
When i entered 7th grade, my mother could no longer afford Christian school so i was dumped into the public school system.
My introduction to public school was when i met eyes with one of our illegal immigrant friends across a courtyard, and he picked up a rock and lobbed it at my head. that was my first day in the public school 7th grade.
School was never my thing.
These kids were studying crap that i had already been over two grades before. it was strange for me to see kids who thought they were smart, learning lessons i had years ago.
The girls would spend most of the day talking about music and clothes.
I quickly realized that none of the teachers were paying any attention to me. midway through the 7th grade i stopped handing in any work. no teacher in the school said anything to me and all my grades stayed at "D"s.
The last report card of the 8th grade, which was the last grade of that school, all the teachers dropped my grades to "F"s. I was pissed. After 2 years of doing nothing they dropped me to Fs and there was nothing i could do.
7th/8th grade : Rumor was going around school that the gym teacher had been caught doing coke.
I had a woodshop teacher go ballistic on me because i broke a button on a bandsaw.
It seemed to me the school set it up that he had to pay for it because he was irate and tried to hand me a bill for $300.
He couldn't afford the $300 on his 60k salary and pension plan so he tried to tell my mom, who was a single mother raising a kid, they she had to pay for it.
My mom went to the school and told him to shove it.
9th grade i had to attend another Jr. high before high school started.
My friend told me that the woodshop teacher was sending him to the office every day and he didn't do anything.
I said "yeah right"
At the end of the year when the woodshop teacher found out that we were friends, he started sending me to the office every day.
I had an English teacher that did nothing all day. I rember one day someone walked into the classroom and he jumped up and started writing crap on the board like he was teaching a class.
The kids hated him. he had divided the desks into 2 sides of the room, and one day one kid through a paper at his head from one direction and when he turned around other kids threw paper from the other direction.
One day we were watching a film and when a girl friend of mine walked into the classroom, the daylight Xrayed her skirt, i can still hear the pervert's voice in my head "hmm rrra ra raaa!"
A couple of years later i was at the store and my friend said "Look! there's Mr Olsberg!"
The guy scambled for his keys, hopped in the car and sped off.
Why was he so scared? we never threatened him. it's because HE KNOWS he's a piece of crap that became a teacher just to get public money.
I started to realize that some teachers were awarding grades based on what people looked like.
This was proved to be a fact when one day my woodshop teacher and my art teacher were talking outside. i walked by and said "hi".
In my art class i was getting an "A", and my woodshop teacher was failing me.
They obviously talked about me , because after that my woodshop teacher started giving me better grades.
10th and 11th high school was a massive collection of perverts.
Friends of mine told me that one teacher was telling people she was raped by Elvis.
One day i left my jacket in the gym after an assembly. I could see through the crack of the door that the school janitor picked up my jacket and was going through the pockets.
I started yelling and kicking the door. People told the staff and it became a big incident, my other teachers started asking me about it. of course, they said they couldn't do anything.
(Janitors in LAUSD are probably paid very well)
One day i was walking to launch and a saw some kid placing pennies on the ground.
i said "what the hell are you doing?"
he says "watch. the assistant Principal is going to pick them up".
he placed a trail of pennies on the ground and we watched the assistant Principal pick them up off the ground.
The same kid told me that he heard the staff talking and they said that the assistant Principal was no longer allowed to have female teacher's assistants.
Some time later i was called into the office and there was some immigrants girl there who was probably sent to the office for some sexual thing. I though to myself, "great! they sent some girl to the office to be disciplined by a pervert"
We also had a couple of teachers who promoted drug use.
in 10th grade i had a black history "teacher".
we get into the class, he has everyone stand up , and he rearranged the whole seating lay-out. the placed all the whites and Hispanics in the back, and moved all the black kids to the front.
i was happy to sit in the back.
I really didn't understand what was happening at the time. now, of course, i realize that this guy was bent on racism.
I remember the first thing we did was open out "history" book , and he had us flip to a page that showed drawings of the KKK outfits.
I remember he talked about slavery most of the time.
About 2 weeks into the class he says to me "if you don't want to participate, just let me know and i won't disturb you" , i said "ok, deal!".
I sure missed out on history that year, ...KKK clothing trends and such.
WE NEVER read books from cover to cover, the school picks oput what they want to teach, and obviously they ignor the required reading.
One day he handed me a note and he said "go deliver this".
I found the classroom i walk inside and there's all these weird kids in a dark classroom.
I handed the note to the teacher, and she said "tell him, this class is full right now".
I walked back to my class and told him the info.
I didn't realize until later that this bastard tried to single handily enter me into some special ed class.
The school i was at had a female Principal, her name was Donna.
It was well known in my school that our Principal Donna was the same Donna who was referenced in Ritchie Valen's song , "Oh Donna", and later became a school teacher.
This was something i believed for most of my life.
In preparing for this thread i decided to do some quick research, and, of course, that was all BS too.
when i entered 11th grade most of my friends graduated.
our group became a lot smaller.
suddenly we started to pick up a lot of flak from the gang members the school district was kind enough to bus in.
Toward the end of 11th , suddenly my 1st period English teacher started to get stern with me. I came in late and she sent me to the office.
I spent the whole hour talking to my guidance counsilor about what kind of guitars and amps would be good for him to buy for his son.
Later on he picked up my file and said "wow! there's no way you can graduate"
(this was only the second time since 7th grade anyone said anything about my grades).
The next day i was late again and the teacher sent me to the office again.
The guidance counsilor picked up a bucket and a scaper , i said "what's that?" , he said "Your going to spend the hour scaping gum off the walkways"
I said "bullsht i am!"
He said " then you're kicked out"
I said "OK bye"
So now i have gone though the trouble of listing exacty what the school system is like.
I hope you read it and paid attention, because there is no way you could support this collection of perverts.
I heard the Las Vegas public school system was collecting $16,000 of tax payer money , per student, per year.
they had so much money they decided they didn't want to pay the phone company and the purchased their own phone system from France.
the LAUSD has to be collecting far more money then that.
the LAUSD does not answer to the city, they have their own inspectors and are a city within themselves.
they produce an amazing amount of drop-outs every year, and no one can tell them sht.
Forget the sob stories.
the only thing these Socialists want is a job where they're paycheck is extorted from the public, and the less work they do , the funnier they think it is.
what do i think?
i think these school systems need to be completely dissolved and rebuilt.
the LAST thing we should do is give them more money.
I believe that teacher tenure is one of the biggest problems in the system. Its almost impossible to get rid of any teacher, no matter how bad they are, which is ridiculous. As far as you or any individual making it successfully through School, it takes a joint effort. The student needs to be motivated and disciplined, especially by his parents. Sure the Schools are flawed but I believe a good education begins at home.
I agree about the tenure, we had so much trouble with a teacher last year I had the principal and assistant principal on speed-dial. This year with a new teacher....no problems. The bad teacher is still in the school system....they just transfer her to other schools in the district

Give a man a capacitor, doesn't know what to do. Teach a man to install it, now he knows everything.
When I was in school, teachers were allowed to design their own curriculum. It was nice and I learned a lot about history, civics, government, bus. law etc.
Today, teachers don't do this. They have to follow state mandated criteria for their lessons. It is the socialization of our teaching system through statism. Its goal is to warp children's fragile eggshell minds and to impose/prepare them for a new world order of things.
With the advent of No child left behind, things like Chicago math came into play. Have you ever experienced chicago math? ...its messed up to say the least.
Also classes that teach your kids that its ok for billy to have 2 daddies or mommies.
I could go on and on.
All this does in the end is weaken the nations foundation by destroying morality, national pride etc.
They are also teaching children not to think on a national level, but rather a socialized world one. This is why the pledge of allegiance is ignored s well as many aspects of history.
Sick and wrong.

Great post Wolfstrike. There is hope however I am impressed with the Charter school system it is a step above your strait state funded schools. I too grew up in a cali. school. Lots of drugs, fights, teachers could care less what grades you get. They were clicked up with the athletes making sure that they maintained the schools reputation. Anyways life goes on. Plenty of drug abuse also.
Went to public school in the 70s when "social promotion" was the thing i.e. you got promoted because it was best for you to remain with your peers rather than be humiliated being held back. You had to be a real bonehead to flunk a grade. Heck, our bus driver would pull over so we could get snow for our bong...smoking was OK in certain areas of the school, even when I was in junior high.
As a maintenance man, the kids weren't afraid to open up to me for some reason. I've heard some pretty toe-curling stuff...these kids really cared but the schools---and parents---didn't.
I've come to the conclusion that the largst part of the problem is the parents, not the teachers. The convenience of "day care" coupled with the ability to pass blame on someone else so that careers can be pursued and creature comforts bought is too great for most.
If one day, every parent kept their kids home in protest, for as long as it took to catch the attention of the teachers and local boards, as a reminder of why they have jobs and where the money comes from, something may come of it. Until then, the teachers and boards have no reason to change, and I don't hold my breath waiting for the parents to do anything.
(The wise men of modern thought) adore a god made of putty or of wax - plastic, effeminate, molluscous, with no masculine faculty about him, and no quality that entitles him to the respect of just and honest men, for a being who cannot be angry at wrongdoing is destitute of one of the essential virtues, and a moral Ruler who is not angry with the wicked, and who refuses to punish crime, is not divine. ---Spurgeon
I believe it is the parents responsibility to educate there children in the skills they need for life as well as their moral values. This does not happen in the modern school system. The current school system is a way for parents to shirk their responsibility. And hand the children over to the state.
I lived in LA for 10 years and would never put my daughter in the LA School System. I paid for private school even if it meant that me and the wife could not afford to go to the movies or out to eat even once a month. Now she is a self determined young woman with a very important position in an insurance company. Has good manners, is respectful, and does a great job at work and is a highly productive member of a team. Graduated college at 19 and would not let her parents pay for her college. She would not be that way had she been in the school system.
I think we need to start questioning the motives of the whole school system. It is not doing our kids any good.
In a class you have one person trying to control various numbers of young people from various backgrounds and social problems/situations. Not easy, especially given that pop culture has a large perverted influence on the young influential minds. I am not forgetting the ones who achieve in spite of their surroundings, they will win in life if at any time they are not pulled down. Not an easy situation
The last post is not a defense for the teachers who have gone astray and broken bad with students.
