The primary goal of a free public education is to educate kids. Its not to further someone’s special agenda or to provide employment for adults. Its time we “got back to basics” and started focusing on the kids. This year LAUSD, including Zimmer, chose to keep elementary school libraries closed, rather than accept parent volunteers due to “union rules.” LET THAT SINK IN. Zimmer kept elementary libraries closed, denied access to reading to entire schools, to protect the union. How does that benefit kids?
