Who Is "Ref" Rodriquez & The California Charter School Association CCSA: Corruption Galore
At a Los Angeles forum on the Fight Against Privatization and Charters, Robert D. Skeels who is an Los Angeles advocate for public education spoke about who "Ref" Rodriquez is and the California Charter School Association CCSA. "Ref" is one of the leading lights of the California Charter School Association CSAA which has been pouring millions of dollars into California school board election and elections of pro-privatization politicians like "Ref" Rodriquez throughout the country.
"Ref"Rodriquez has been charged with conspiracy and financial corruption by having his employees illegally fund his election campaign with his money possibly received from LAUSD.
He was also illegally appointed by pro-charter Governor Brown to a public position at the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing CTC. This despite the fact he is the owner of a charter school. He has voted for further privatization.
This educational forum took place on September 30, 2017.

The UTLA, LAUSD, Eli Broad, Union Busting & Corporate Unionism
At a forum on The Fight Against Privatization and Charters, UTLA retired teacher Michael Dominguez talks about the failure of the UTLA leadership to defend the more than 5,000 teachers who have been harassed, bullied and fired illegally by the LAUSD management. The Teacher Jail Program Dominguez says was accepted by the UTLA and the program was replicated around the country. He also discusses how the CTA leadership has received funding from billionaire privatizers to support their agenda in the schools. The UTLA leadership also has included charter school operators and supporters of "unionized" charters. The CTA and CFT are supporting privatization through their support of charters if they are unionized and have "transparency”.
