If you want to know why teachers are being laid off in California (even if teaching has remained one of the most secure jobs nationwide) you might want to check out this new $578 million high school in LA Unified School District. As we’ve written before on JPGB, buildings don’t teach kids, people do. Given the way school districts squander their resources, maybe they’ll soon need another $26 billion in Edujobs from Congress (read: taxpayers).
[CORRECTION — Oops. This is actually a photo of a different (and much less costly) high school in LA, the Visual and Performing Arts High School. I can only imagine that the new $578 million high school is plated in gold.]
Thanks to Stuart for finding a photo of the $578 million high school. It doesn’t look plated in gold so I guess the gold is on the inside:
