This is your lead-off story? Feeding the anti-science ignorance peddling hype mill? I have triedRead More often to unsubscribe from your news feed, without success. But this story makes it clear that you are the news equivalent of Cheetos. Fake coloring, flaky, nothing inside.

Govt gone wild In the mean time go and suk down some of the tasty FLUORIDE and Chlorine they add to our drinking water.

Tom Thumb, I'm the father of a 33 year old autistic man, and know many autistic adults. Like Carl,Read More I've not researched why "autism is on the rise". I think part of the reason is that many more professionals are aware of the disorder, more children and adults who might not have received adequate examinations or not seen by knowledgeable professionals might have fallen thru the cracks, or might have been diagnosed as intellectually impaired or other incorrect diagnosis. My son was seen by many doctors and professionals over many years in the 80s and 90s before he was diagnosed. We also knew of no other child like him until his senior year in high school. Since then, we've seen many, many more people like him. The condition itself may or may not be on the rise, but awareness, treatments and educational opportunities have certainly identified more autistic people and provided more help for them.

You're saying, with autism on the rise, and 2 of your 5 children having it, and with all yourRead More articles on all the Democrat talking points posted everywhere, that you haven't looked into it. And you want people to elect you to whatever position it is in a supervisory position at LAUSD. One ringy-dingy.

Hey Snow - I think you are giving us a snow job. Don't take that wrong- it's more interestingRead More that way.

Parent Skill Number 1: Don't send your kids to poor performing schools (because poor performingRead More peers/students) like what are in most of the LAUSD.

The layout of the grammer school makes a difference in what the child is exposed to and learns.Read More That sounds inconceivable but whan they made the decision to put the children is separate bungalows with just one teacher all day it meant that they would not be exposed to specialist teachers such as literature, art, and music appreciation until they get to Jr. High School. I grew up during the great depression. Most assuredly there was no excess money for education, yet we had a gym teacher, we received instructions in drawing and painting, and we listened to classical records in our one day a week music class - because we walked to the specialist teachers classroom. Getting instruction in the humanities costs no more than sitting all day with the same teacher. It is the number of classroom hours spent per week that counts. The Superintendant does not have to hire more teachers, he hires specialists who excite and stimulate the kids in the subject that they themselves love so much. When the child gets a singlr teacheer who teaches math, English, history, etc. that teacher is bound to not be too good at some of the myriad subjects. If we could expose kids tothe very best at the hight of the depression we can do better by them than to have them sit on their behinds all day with someone who is a master of some and a bore at all.

Ziegler April 20, 2014 at 04:06 AM "Karl has not blamed teachers and in fact he laments thatRead More Parents are ignored especially the Parents who want the besat for their kids. Over all the teachers are very much respected." ________________________________________________________ I think that the current tenure system is an insult to great teachers. The first special education classroom that I witnessed for my daughters did little more than babysit them. We were told that they were doing all they could for them and that they were meeting all of the goals of their IEP. Their next teacher was still taking classes towards her masters degree and was excited to try new things. My daughters made amazing progress. ____________________________________________________ When the LAUSD was forced to lay off teachers, do you want to guess which one lost her Special Education assignment? Instead she was assigned to a kindergarten classroom. What a waste of a special talent!
