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.
There's a "Teacher's Raise Rally" on Wednesday, November 13, 2013 at 4pm, 333 Beaudry, Los Angeles, CA.
Today's radio show will feature many participants who will recap yesterday's Protest in Flagstaff, Arizona.
"Rally Against the Theft of Antiquity - Stop Peabody’s Restraint on Black Mesa Navajo History" Why Protest: Millions of Indigenous remains, artifacts, and sacred objects have been desecrated by Peabody Energy's coal mining at Black Mesa, Arizona.
Concerned Dine´ !(Navajos) and other indigenous rights supporters held a protest to expose Peabody's deliberate process of confiscating Indigenous History!! "With more community interest & support, Peabody can be stopped from desecrating more of the endless network of ancient dwelling sites. The less involvement by communities the more Peabody and their archaeologist (Black Mesa Archeology Project) will steal & profit, because cultural and human rights of the antiquities aren't being enforced."
The people are protesting to raise awareness, the absence and removal of any public process attached to the regulatory and legal protection of intact and removed ancient sites are being found curated in collections!
"BMAP's transfer was initiated before the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) was created and when many of today’s tribal leaders were children." according to Brian Dunfee of Peabody Energy. !It wasn’t until after the permit was issued that confirmation of the "collection" was formally announced at the true locations and facilities.
To date, there has not been an inventory conducted of the BMAP “artifacts” that complies with current laws regarding protection of Indian "artifacts.” BMAP includes 1.3 million "artifacts" currently held at two American universities.
