Improperly assigned teachers a problem
San Francisco Chronicle, by Joanna Lin

Original Article

Posted By:wydleyred, 2/24/2013 1:10:38 PM

Public schools across California have assigned thousands of teachers to classes without the proper credentials or legal authorization, a persistent problem that state and local education officials blame on mismanagement, budget shortages and a limited pool of qualified specialists. Untrained teachers have been assigned to a variety of difficult classes, including those filled with English-language learners and others with special intellectual and physical needs. In many cases, these teachers lack training in a particular subject that they´ve been assigned to teach, such as English or math.

Comments:
Tax dollars spent on education are being wasted. More importantly, young people are being cheated out of the education they urgently need.

How much training do those loser teachers need to spread the Marxist agenda?

@OP: That is by design. The Dems have a political lock on California. Sacramento is owned by the Teachers Union and power will never again be relinquished to the GOP, which in CA, is pretty much nonexistent at this point.

Apparently there just aren´t enough "porn stars" available to assign to all the classrooms.

Now we know why Ms Pelosi thinks the way she does and says the stuff she says. Every class she took was taught by a janitor posing as a teacher and Ms Pelosi believed every word of it.

This is blaring evidence that teachers unions don´t care at all about The Children. Instead of hiring & assigning teachers according to their skills, they abuse qualified teachers to accomodate nepotism & political favors. Class Action Lawsuit, anyone?

My guess is one of the biggest problems is a lack of bi-lingual teachers,so the classes are being filled by underqualified teachers,simply because they can speak Spanish. The parents of these kids can´t speak english themselves so they´re overflowing the schools,hoping they teach them to speak english.

People are sneered at ,at the suggestion that English should be the national official language,even though your success path in life has a better chance if you know the language.

#4 I believe Our Lady of Perpetual Surprise was born and raised in Baltimore, where her father was a congress-critter from Maryland and then the Mayor of Baltimore. I think in her case it´s just senility, but the schools in California have long been terrible, more interested in churning out "citizens" than teaching Johnny to read. If Johnny can read, he might learn something.

Political Correctness is the primary driver of teacher assignments most anywhere, not just California.

Pelosi is not from California...she is another carpetbagger like most of the Democrats that ruined this once great state. California used to have excellent schools back before the lefties began taking over in the late 60s and early 70s. I was lucky to have gone to some very good schools--though I did notice we started getting some stupid lefty types coming in during the 70s. Still, I think I learned much more from my parents (especially my stay-at-home mother) than I did from school. Anyway, most of the time I was lucky and got the old school teachers, but I had friends who were in classes with the "groovy and hip" ones. I saw a difference right away. In junior high and high school, I was stuck with a few of the "progressive" types, but they were still few and far between back then. I would hate to see what it is like now. Yes, the lefties are destroying schools on purpose. They want the public to be ignorant and indoctrinated. That is why I am glad I had no children. It is better to homeschool.

Save some of that anger for the brilliant students in Ca. who are held down and shoved back into subjects they could have mastered
very early. Gifted children in Ca. are just as ill treated as any other group if their parents can´t afford private school.
It hurts even worse when they meet with their family peers out of state and learn just how badly they are being cheated.

Did you CA residents catch those magic words "budget shortages"? Welcome to Brown´s next tax increase for your bloated school administration budgets and bloated teacher union wages, benefits, and pensions.

The Great One has been downsized. Denali, North America’s tallest peak, is not quite as tall as once thought, but it’s still the tallest peak on the continent. Updated radar mapping conducted in 2012 put the Mount McKinley at 20,237 feet rather than 20,320 feet, Alaska Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell told the annual symposium of the International Map Collectors’ Society held in Fairbanks this week.

Fairbanks - The rusty 55-gallon barrels sit on the tundra near Chandler Lake in the middle of the Brooks Range like a caribou herd scattered across the landscape, surrounded by rugged, snow-capped 6,000- and 7,000-foot-high peaks. Unlike caribou, rusty barrels don’t feed the people of Anaktuvuk Pass, and they aren’t nearly as nice to look at, which is why residents in the village in the Brooks Range 250 miles northeast of Fairbanks want them gone. The fuel drums, an estimated 130 of them, have been sitting there for more than 50 years, left by the Department of Defense

Nude Aid benefit

San Francisco Supervisor Scott Wiener´s ban on baring it all in San Francisco notwithstanding, Nude Aid, a benefit for the Center for Sex and Culture, brought more than 30 artists and a dozen naked and fetish-clad models together for a pre-Valentine´s Day sketch session. Visitors hoping for an erotic thrill by seeing models in the buff got a different surprise (although the man with his face painted purple in the mode of a Mexican wrestling mask was an unexpected treat). The real voyeurism was peering over the shoulders of the artists as they worked

A former offensive tackle for the San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders faces charges that he assaulted his boyfriend at a Menlo Park restaurant after an argument involving soy sauce and underpants, San Mateo County prosecutors said Monday. Kwame Harris, 30, became angry with Dimitri Geier, 36, in August 2012 at Su Hong restaurant on Menlo Avenue, according to court documents. The ex-football player lashed out when Geier tried to put soy sauce on Harris´ rice, said Al Serrato, a San Mateo County prosecutor. "Basically they're having dinner together

Many people turn to knitting as a means of stress reduction, and Harmeet Dhillon of San Francisco was no exception when she took up the hobby during college in 1986. Dhillon, however, has taken her interest in textiles a step or two further than most recreational knitters. In 2012, she founded Sea Ranch Woolworks,(Snip) She was born in rural India and is now as an award-winning trial attorney at the helm of her own firm, chairwoman of the Republican Party of San Francisco and a candidate for vice chair of the California Republican Party.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

   

 



 
White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
