Laid off instructional aides protest at SAUSD headquarters

Laid off Santa Ana Unified School District instructional aides protested yesterday at SAUSD headquarters, over on Chestnut and Grand in Santa Ana.  One of the protesters ended his hunger strike that had begun on Monday, as we previously reported.

The O.C. Register also reported yesterday that the SAUSD has rescinded most of their teacher layoffs.  They originally laid off over 500 teachers.  Now only 13 will be laid off (talk about an unlucky number!).

For some reason the O.C. Register has NOT reported another story we covered yesterday – that the SAUSD has utterly bungled their summer school program as hundreds of students have been turned away.

Clearly folks in town are waking up to the obvious – the SAUSD administration is LAME and should be tossed out.  By the way, I am told that NO SAUSD administrators have been laid off and NONE of them have taken any pay cuts.  Figures.  Keep in mind that the SAUSD Superintendent is paid more than any other Superintendent in the county, even though this is her first Superintendent job, she doesn’t speak Spanish and she doesn’t have a doctorate in education.  If anyone ought to take a pay cut it is SAUSD Superintendent Jane Russo!
