A Facebook page that claims to be made of LAUSD educators have been exposing the disgusting conditions in many of our schools.

The group's name, "Repairs Not iPads," is in direct reference to the LAUSD's plans to shell out millions of dollars to put an iPad in the hands of every student. The group has been posting pictures since early December, and the conditions in the pictures are horrid: rotting water fountains, broken faucets, bugs crawling everywhere and missing tiles on the floor.

In some of the pictures, they make snide remarks to Superintendent John Deasy's pet iPad program, such as "Maybe if students are staring at iPads they will be able to forget about the cockroaches," and, "Rat droppings at Middle school. Second time in two weeks! Will an iPad make this OK?"

Just look at what they've documented so far.
