‘Teacher jail’ for Ref Rodriguez
Re “L.A. Unified blindsided by charges against board president,” Sept. 15
If safety is a top priority for the Los Angeles Unified School District, then Board of Education President Ref Rodriguez should immediately join the educators in the LAUSD’s “teacher jail” until the felony charges against him are litigated.
Rodriguez should not be leading this district as school board president, should not have any contact with students or staff and should be placed under the exact same restrictions and limitations that teachers and administrators accused of such improper conduct would be. Bruce Gurnick Northridge
Was I the only one blindsided by the school board election two years ago? That Rodriguez, co-owner of a charter school company, was even able to run?
Whatever happened to “conflict of interest”? The gullible voters, swayed by support from billionaires fighting for the profitmaking charters (funded by taxpayers), helped elect a fox to guard the henhouse. Planaria Price Los Angeles
When did the new procharter LAUSD board majority know that Rodriguez was under investigation for reimbursing campaign donors? Did they know before they elected him board president?
For the best interests of students, taxpayers and the smooth running of the troubled school district, I ask that the board name an acting president who is not under investigation. John Paul Drayer Silver Lake
