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 second-largest district, which 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 Education. The Dean of the college at the time was Robert Felner, now serving a jail term of 63 months in prison 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 earned his PhD directly under Felner in a period of 4 months, earning only 9 University of Louisville credits. Prior to coming to the UL, Deasy had awarded Felner's research company, the National Center on Public Education and Social Policy, a $375,000 grant from the Santa Monica district where Deasy was head.
As Superintendent, John Deasy has overseen thousands of teachers losing their jobs. Incredibly, Los Angeles teachers have not received a salary increase in almost 7 years, while the UTLA teacher's union leaders are paid up to $221,758 a year.

Los Angeles is electing a new Mayor on Tuesday, and the winner will be the Democrat. That's because the runoff election is between TWO progressive, pro-choice Democrats: Eric Garcetti and Wendy Greuel. What makes this race interesting is that, if elected, candidate Greuel would become the first woman to lead the nation's second largest city. When faced with the choice of two candidates with such similar positions and records, what criteria do voters use to make their selection? Is gender the only valid one? Sarah Auerswald and Yvonne Condes of MomsLA and CoolMom Daphne Brogdon join Cynematic and Donna Schwartz Mills in this political discussion co-production between MOMocrats and K12 News Network, produced by Engender Media Group.
