John Deasy Steps Down from LA Unified

Hosted by

John Deasy and the elected school board agree that academic achievement rose during his tenure as Superintendent of LA Unifed. So, did he really resign today… or was he pushed out of the second largest public school district in the United States? We’ll hear about Deasy’s departure, and about his interim replacement—Ramon Cortines, who’s been there before.

Also, sex with minor children is a business in Southern California. Law enforcement is finally beginning to treat the kids as victims, and courts are focused on rehabilitation, rather than punishment.
