Capistrano Teacher Union Operative’s Story Hard to Swallow

Larry Sand President California Teachers Empowerment Network

Deceptive campaign websites point to CUEA front-group leader.

The Capistrano Unified School District (CUSD) in California’s Orange County has seen more than its share of school board battles in recent years. In 2008, parent activists managed to rid themselves of possibly the most corrupt school board in America. Immortalized in Not As Good As You Think, parents endured the horrors of an enemies list, publicly-released home phone numbers and implied threats against their children, but remained determined and ultimately managed to seat a reform-minded, honest, child-friendly board.

The peace that returned to this upscale area was short-lived, however. In January 2010, a recall against two of the board members was launched. The Capistrano United Education Association (a California Teachers Association local) didn’t think much of Mike Winsten’s and Ken Lopez-Maddox’s emphasis on children, their refusal to kowtow to CUEA and their conservative leanings. Leading the charge was the Orwellian-named Children First,a CUEA front group, whose agenda couldn’t find room for kids.

Unfortunately the union’s efforts to recall Winsten and Maddox-Ford were successful. At the same time, three other board members were up for reelection. After the dust had settled on Election Day, 2010, the board consisted of four pro-children and three pro-union members. CUEA seemed pleased, though its spending binge did not secure the union a majority. According to the Orange County Register,

Capistrano Unified’s teachers union has poured $261,863 into the district’s school board election to date (Oct. 30), including $67,040 this week alone, while its chief political rival, the Committee to Reform CUSD, has continued to lag behind, reporting no spending over $1,000 in the past two weeks.

With spending by the union’s ally – the Capistrano Unified Children First group – factored in, overall spending by these groups is outpacing the Reform Committee’s spending by more than a 16 to 1 margin.

And once again, it’s school board election season for CUSD and, not surprisingly, union spending is going gangbusters. For the most part, the reformers are putting their own money into their campaigns, but the union-backed candidates – surprise, surprise – are getting a big financial boost from union front groups. According to local writer Penny Arévalo,

The two biggest money raisers and spenders are the teachers’ union PAC, known as Help Organize for Public Education, and a group that rallies for similar candidates and causes, Capistrano Unified Children First.

Children First has raised $36,537 and spent $32,485. It has a cash balance of $5,816.

HOPE has raised $73,228 this year and spent $26,097. It’s sitting on $67,805.

But it seems that providing its candidates with a huge spending advantage isn’t enough for the union and its acolytes. Apparently, someone closely associated with CUEA set up a series of fraudulent websites. Particularly hard hit was Julie Collier, leader of a group called the Parents Advocate League. Collier has made some enemies because she has the temerity to believe that parents should be informed about educational issues that pertain to their children. Two of the bogus websites targeted her one using her own name and the other using her organization’s name. Furious, Collier immediately retained a lawyer to find the culprit, and on October 17th, Arévalo reported “Deceptive Campaign Websites Tied to Children First Volunteer.”

In a letter sent to attorney Wayne Tate by GoDaddy, which hosted at least six misleading URLS, Chris Korpi was identified as the person who bought www.juliecollier.com and www.parentsadvocateleague.com, which initially redirected visitors to school board President Gary Pritchard’s campaign site and Children First’s website, respectively.

A GoDaddy representative said the company cannot confirm whether the person who supplied all the information to purchase the domain names was indeed Chris Korpi.

Seemingly Korpi, the man behind Children First – the union front group – has been caught with his fingerprints all over the cookie jar, though he adamantly denies the charges.

Korpi blamed the misleading web addresses on political opponents, noting he hasn’t run the business named in the GoDaddy email, Korpi Marketing Services, for eight years, and that all his contact information listed is publicly available for someone to steal his identity.

Grasping at straws, he even had the temerity to blame the dirty tricks on Jennifer Beall, who along with her husband Rancho Santa Margarita Mayor Tony Beall, are long time CUSD reformers. The Bealls and Collier are allies, and to blame Beall for the misdeed is positively loony.

And I guess it’s just a coincidence that, according to Arévalo, Korpi is on the payroll of John Alpay, a union-backed incumbent running for reelection.

One of the misleading URLs went to Alpay’s campaign site. He and (incumbent Gary) Pritchard are both endorsed by Children First

This would all be humorous – great fodder for The Onion or Saturday Night Live – if it weren’t dealing with real kids, their real parents and their very real problems with education in their school district. Whether the guilty party is Korpi or some other union crony, it is apparent that that CUEA will stop at nothing in its quest for power. And there is nothing at all funny about that

The Results of Obama’s Hope and Change

Those that voted for Obama did not realize that when you voted for Hope & Change you were voting for the hope that he would leave you with some change… in your pocket. How did that work out for you?

  • Unemployment still in double digits and worsening
  • 80% of college grads cannot find work in chosen profession
  • Over 40% of Americans now on federal assistance (an all-time high)
  • National debt UP 60% since taking office (over $16 trillion)
  • An 84% failure rate on “green” taxpayer investments that most taxpayers opposed
  • Average American income DOWN over $4000 per year
  • Home values still DOWN more than 30% nationally
  • Businesses are closing and investors are leaving America
  • Obama has sent more jobs overseas than all of the last five presidents combined

Inflation is the most punishing tax of all – printing and borrowing 42 cents for every dollar the government spends is suicidal.

  • Cost of gas UP 137%
  • Cost of potatoes UP 306%
  • Cost of butter and coffee UP more than 150%
  • Beef, milk and flour UP more than 100%
  • Eggs and rice UP over 70%

Workers and the Job Creators « The USA Plan

Since the beginning of time no government has ever has ever allowed their workers to achieve financial independence. They have never legislated a way to do that.  In 1776 that limitation was partially lifted.  America created the world’s first democracy and introduced the opportunity for anyone to become financially independent.  That opportunity created a new class of people called job creators.

No history lesson is needed here. A free market society naturally pits the job creator against the worker.  The cost of workers affects the bottom line of the job creator therefore his shareholders, bankers, creditors look to him to keep the cost of workers as low as possible to maintain his profitability and stability. This has naturally created class warfare between the job creators many of whom have achieved financial independence and workers who mostly haven’t.

Today a great debate is going on in America about everything except the real missing link – how to help workers achieve financial independence. Everyone is too busy just surviving shrinking income and wealth, joblessness and economic stagnation. Everyone is screaming at each other about which political party has a plan to just get America back on a stable and sustainable economic path and create millions of jobs.

Small Class-Size Balloon Punctured Again

Larry Sand President California Teachers Empowerment Network

It’s time to “just say no” to the small class-size pushers and eliminate seniority as a staffing mechanism

Small class size means less work for teachers. Parents seem to think that their child will be better educated in a room with fewer classmates. Unions love fewer kids in a class because it equates to a larger workforce, which means more money and power for them. Only problem is that small class size does not lead to greater student achievement. It just means more hiring, then laying off the same teachers and punishing taxpayers who needlessly pay for a bloatedworkforce.

Last week, the Wall Street Journal published “The Imaginary Teacher Shortage,” an op-ed byprofessor of education reform at the University of Arkansas Jay Greene, in which he exposes the small-is-better canard.

For decades we have tried to boost academic outcomes by hiring more teachers, and we have essentially nothing to show for it. In 1970, public schools employed 2.06 million teachers, or one for every 22.3 students, according to the U.S. Department of Education’s Digest of Education Statistics. In 2012, we have 3.27 million teachers, one for every 15.2 students.

Greene also addresses the fact that as hiring increases, there is less likelihood of a student getting a good teacher. And  having a good teacher is the most important factor in student achievement.

Parents like the idea of smaller class sizes in the same way that people like the idea of having a personal chef. Parents imagine that their kids will have one of the Iron Chefs. But when you have to hire almost 3.3 million chefs, you’re liable to end up with something closer to the fry-guy from the local burger joint.

Just three months ago, director of Cato’s Center for Educational Freedom Andrew Coulson wrote a similar op-ed in the same newspaper. The subhead in “America Has Too Many Teachers” sets the tone:

Public-school employees have doubled in 40 years while student enrollment has increased by only 8.5%—and academic results have stagnated

In the body of the piece, he gives us some numbers to chew on. Whereas Greene talks specifically about teachers, Coulson refers to the entire “public school workforce.”

Since 1970, the public school workforce has roughly doubled—to 6.4 million from 3.3 million—and two-thirds of those new hires are teachers or teachers’ aides. Over the same period, enrollment rose by a tepid 8.5%. Employment has thus grown 11 times faster than enrollment. (Emphasis added.) If we returned to the student-to-staff ratio of 1970, American taxpayers would save about $210 billion annually in personnel costs.

I contributed my own two cents on the subject in City Journal in July of 2011.

In 1998, Hoover Institution senior fellow and economist Eric Hanushek released the results of his impressive review of class-size studies. Examining 277 separate studies on the effect of teacher-pupil ratios and class-size averages on student achievement, he found that 15 percent of the studies found an improvement in achievement, while 72 percent found no effect at all—and 13 percent found that reducing class size had a negative effect on achievement. While Hanushek admits that in some cases, children might benefit from a small-class environment, there is no way ‘to describe a priori situations where reduced class size will be beneficial.’

So basically, almost three-quarters of all the studies showed no benefit to small class size, and of the rest, almost the same number revealed negative effects as positive ones.

While it is a personal hardship for a teacher to be laid off, no one should be surprised when it happens. When economic times are good, it’s easy to buy into more hiring. But good economic times don’t last forever and when suddenly we can’t afford all the teachers we have hired and some need to be let go, it is brazen of the self-righteous, small class-size true believers to mislead the public with their hand-wringing and political posturing.

And we can’t say we weren’t warned that there were going to be problems. Back in April of 2004, teacher union watchdog Mike Antonucci wrote,

Enrollment Figures Spell Big Trouble for Education Labor.

The U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) regularly reviews enrollment figures, comparing past years with expectations for the future. Its most recent report shows clearly that the fat years of teacher employment are over, and the lean years may last much longer than anyone has previously predicted.

NCES compared the period 1988-2001 with its projections for 2001-2013. The differences are stark. While public school enrollment increased 19 percent between 1988 and 2001, it is expected to grow only 4 percent between 2001 and 2013. During the period 1988-2001, the number of public school teachers grew by an astonishing 29 percent. The forecast for 2001-2013 is growth of only 5 percent – or less than 0.4 percent annually.

Then in June 2004, referring to Rankings and Estimates, a National Education Association report, Antonucci wrote,

In 2003-04, American public elementary schools taught 1,649,027 more pupils than they did in 1993-94. But there were 247,620 more elementary school classroom teachers in 2003-04 than there were in 1993-94. Simply put, for every 20 additional students enrolled in America’s K-8 schools in the last 10 years, we hired three additional elementary school classroom teachers.

So clearly, having fewer teachers is not necessarily a bad thing, but it is tragic when we lose the good ones. Throughout much of the country, the decisions as to which teachers get laid off are determined by archaic seniority policies. Teachers-of-the-year are laid off before their mediocre or incompetent counterparts simply because the latter may have been hired a few days before the former. This is no way to run an education system. The sooner we get away from the smaller-is-better myth and turn our attention to scrapping the industrial style “last in, first out” method, the better.

Lindsay Lohan Endorses Republican Candidate Mitt Romney

When it comes to Hollywood endorsements, Republicans usually have to take what they can get. The big names generally tend to swing left-of-center, as Tinseltown’s elite regularly host fundraisers and head out on the campaign trail in support of Democratic candidates.

This electoral cycle is no different, however it appears that a few, more prevalent actors and performers are stepping up to the plate to endorse GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Clint Eastwood, Stacey Dash, and now — Lindsay Lohan.

Despite recently getting into an alleged altercation with a Republican congressional staffer, Lohan is anything but turned off by the Grand Old Party’s messaging.

While she openly supported President Barack Obama in 2008, Lohan is changing teams. At the center of her decision to select the Republican nominee over the Democratic incumbent? Unemployment.

“I just think employment is really important right now,” the troubled star told E!, while at Mr. Pink’s Ginseng Drink event in Beverly Hills, California, on Thursday. “So, as of now, Mitt Romney. As of now.”

Last month, during Obama’s Democratic National Convention speech, Lohan tweeted the president, about the need to cut taxes for “those that are listed on Forbes as ‘millionaires.’”

“If they are not, you must consider that as well,” Lohan continued in the same social media message.

The message, which was hard to decipher, was subsequently deleted from her feed, although TheBlaze noted that she kept a number of other political tweets up, including one that included a link to contribute to Obama’s campaign.

It seems that the starlet’s opinions — at least for now — have changed. In 2008, Lohan offered to stump for Obama, but the campaign allegedly turned her down. At the time, it was suspected that the actress was in a same-sex relationship, which purportedly led her to make numerous claims against then vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin and the Republican Party.

WHEN – he finally completed his transformation of America into a Socialist State , people woke up— but it was too late. Add these up one by one and you get a phenomenal score that points to the fact that Barrack Hussein Obama is determined to turn America into a Marxist-Socialist society. All of the items in the preceding paragraphs have been put into place. All can be documented very easily. Before you disavow this do an Internet search. The last paragraph alone is not yet cast in stone. You and I will write that paragraph.

Will it read as above or will it be a happier ending for most of America ?

Don’t just belittle the opposition. Search for the truth. We all need to pull together or watch the demise of a free democratic society. Pray for Americans to seek the truth and take action for it will keep us FREE. Our biggest enemy is not China, Russia , North Korea or Iran . Our biggest enemy is a contingent of politicians in Washington , DC . The government will not help, so we need to do it ourselves.
