According to the "California Watch", with California's public school system facing economic uncertainties...some of the most financially troubled districts have been elevating the payroll for top administrators. One is the Los Angeles Unified School District, the nation's 2nd-largest district, has been buried under a cumulative $2.8 billion dollar deficit for the past five years, and has eliminated more than 12,000 teaching and staff positions. Los Angeles Unified pays Superintendent John Deasy $384,948 a year, about five times the salary of the average teacher. Since 2009 the school district has raised John Deasy's salary by 32 percent. Superintendent Deasy has attracted controversy in this position and other positions. According to the Substance News, John Deasy claims to have earned his PhD at the University of Louisville (UL) in the College of Ed.
The Dean of the college at the time was Robert Felner, now serving a prison term of 63 months for a variety of frauds committed against the University of Louisville, and other universities, which includes misappropriation of a $649,000 federal grant. Felner was also convicted of stealing $2.3 million in research grants. John Deasy got a "fake" PhD directly under Felner in a period of 4 months, earning only 9 credits! John Deasy has been thrown out of other superintendent positions for having this "fake" PhD. Why is the LAUSD Board members allowing Deasy to keep this job? Is it kickbacks? As Superintendent, John Deasy has overseen thousands of teachers losing their jobs. Incredibly, Los Angeles teachers have not received a salary increase in 7 years! The UTLA teacher's union leaders was paid a total of $1,327,172 in salaries, and $444,309 in OTHER compensation, for a total of $1,771,481 a year! It's clear the UTLA teacher's union is in bed with the School District.
