Despite lots of our current campuses not meeting the federal standards (although 81% passed state requirements), LAUSD opened 13 new schools today. It is the largest opening of new school campuses at one time in any district ever in the nation, according to Superintendent Romer anyway. Not only are there new schools butwe're doing away with year-round school and might get rid of junk food on all public campuses.

No sodas and cheetos?! How will our young people ever get hopped up on sugar and ruin their homework with cheesy gristle now?

Has the world gone mad?
