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.

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.

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

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.

It's usually easy to predict how particular California state legislators will vote on a bill: 99 percent of the time, Democrats vote the same way as the majority of their party; 94 percent of the time, Republicans vote the same way as the majority of their party, according to a Bee review of voting records from the 2011-2012 legislative session. The two parties are each unanimous in their support or rejection of a bill during the vast majority of votes. Every Democrat in the Assembly or Senate voted the same way on about 86 percent of bills.

California East Bay Rep. Pete Stark, a 20-term Democrat facing the toughest race of his career, refuses to debate his Democratic opponent Eric Swalwell, calls press questions “stupid,” and was a no-show at a senior voter candidates’ forum this week in his CD-15 district. And now there’s this: he’s producing his own campaign “news” videos, showing him taking “tough” questions — from his staff. In the video series called “Pete Stark taking the tough questions,” the often-inaccessble Congressman is shown serenely conversing in a library setting, where he’s apparently able to shield himself from pesky

The Sierra Club is spending $625,000 to defeat a Republican lawmaker who has championed one of the environmental organization’s most cherished goals – draining the Hetch Hetchy reservoir in Yosemite National Park. Campaign finance reports show that in September, the Sierra Club Independent Action super political action committee made several expenditures targeting U.S. Rep. Dan Lungren of Gold River, who is locked in a tight race against Democrat Dr. Ami Bera, an Elk Grove physician. The club is paying for a hard-edged series of TV commercials and mailers in the Sacramento-area district.

As they battle for those workers, the United Auto Workers is calling Local 1000 a hypocritical union-buster. An official with the National Labor Relations Board says SEIU, as an employer, has engaged in "unfair labor practices."

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall.

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their
