L.A. County Elementary Schools Are Cleared To Fully Open

Los Angeles County elementary school campuses are cleared to fully reopen for the first time in nearly a year because of dropping coronavirus rates, health officials confirmed Monday night.

County Supervisor Janice Hahn tweeted out the news before the official confirmation, with a celebratory tweet in the late afternoon: “L.A.

Starting tomorrow, schools can reopen” if they have submitted and posted the necessary paperwork with county and state officials.

“This is what we have been working towards,” Hahn added.

  1. And he should have added: The teachers are expected back in 2 weeks. If they don’t show then we will hire others to take their place. We will NOT take union dues out of their checks. They can contribute is they desire. And kiss “tenure” adios! You will come in on a one year contract. Then renewed for another year then renewed for 5 years then subject to approval every five years. However you can be fired at any time due to incompetence or malfeasance.

    • Amen, to that. I’ve worked with far too many “tenured” teachers that don’t give a rats behind, because of this. They are lazy, beyond incompetent, let the “inmates” run the classroom, with their bad behaviors.

  2. The Teechers Union in California has been way too powerful for way too long. Open the schools and if the teachers don’t show fire them. What have we got to lose ? Our schools presently rank 48th in the nation
