Jurislator, Rebuked

Judge Freeman stopped the California exit exam for high school graduation. The California Supreme Court disagrees with his ruling.

There's hope yet.

And speaking of public education in California, the poor, poor teachers represented by UTLA are now demanding a 14% pay increase since revenues for the state have come in higher than expected.

Average pay for LAUSD teachers is nearly $57,000 for 9 months work (not including a far better than average health care package and retirement benefits), but they still insist they are severely underpaid. Performance of LAUSD students continues to be dismal, but don't blame the teachers, and don't blame illegal immigration, blame Pres. Bush, Gov. Schwarzenegger, and racist exit exams.
