March 4 Education March Downtown Los Angeles

by wg2k1 Friday, Mar. 05, 2010 at 11:59 PM

A video, several photos, and snarky comments.

March 4 Education Ma...

Numerous demonstrations rocked the region, and the downtown LA event pulled together a lot of people from a lot of different places, including the suburbs. People all the way from Pomona, and even Alhambra and the Garvey districts (which to westsiders is as far as Pomona, but, you and I know better). LAUSD teachers were in the house, educating the educators about marching, because they're old hands at it, from fighting the huge bureaucracy for years.

I'm more of a "break up the district" kind of guy. Maybe the UTLA would hate me for that - but the UTLA should not be such a company union. They should organize outside of the district too. These photos are from the end of the march. The video runs around 3 blocks.

The first picture, above, sums up my thinking. We should be paying for education out of our taxes, not through usage fees. Nobody, even a tradesperson or laborer or poor person should be deprived of learning.

We can come up with some corollaries to this one.

fighting against budget cuts = fighting against class war

damn... an anarchist's paradox. perhaps anarchists should fight for budget cuts, to increase class war.

The Arts

The Arts...

Everyone deserves the arts. That's why they teach it in public school, which is like a central social institution - a multi-service center for the community. That's one theory of The School.

Yes, with those funny school scissors, you can't cut much of anything. These are the adult-sized ones.

Blue Spreadsheet Guy

Blue Spreadsheet Guy...
spreadsheet.jpg, image/jpeg, 600x428

Sometimes, spreadsheets hide formulas, because this guy's assertion that undereducated people become criminals is really unfair to the undereducated.

What really happens is that an undereducated community that cannot get high-paying jobs represents a business opportunity for criminals. Poor people want stuff, just like everyone, and they're willing to pay good money to get products at 20% of retail from some guy, who got it from some other professional theif, who stole it from the local store or some more wealthy, nearby residents.

Of these characters, some will get caught, and they end up in prison, costing us a lot of tax money. Before then, though, they'll cost us a lot of money by robbing us.
