Los Angeles, CA — In a seven minute video blog, the Full Disclosure Network™ presents shocking and revealing video clips covering financial operations of the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD). Available free, on demand, 24/7 at www.fulldisclosure.net/flash/VideoBlogs/VideoBlog18.php . The presentation outlines who the major players are supporting the break-up of the School District and those calling for an outside independent audit by L. A. City Controller Laura Chick with a description of the battle brewing between Mayor Antonio Villargiarosa and LAUSD Superintendent Roy Romer.
Billed as “the news behind the news”, the prominent officials appearing on this Full Disclosure™ Video Blog™ are: L. A. City Controller Laura Chick, Special Assistant District Attorney Anthony Patchett (ret), Cardinal Roger Mahoney, and Roger Carrick, Special Legal Counsel to the LAUSD Inspector General. The video blog is hosted by Leslie Dutton.
At issue is the high drop-out rate of the District, the multi-billion-dollar LAUSD annual budget and $27 billion dollars in taxpayer funds received by the District over the past seven years from bonds and matching funds intended for school construction. Prosecutors and politicians claim the District is not accountable for the money and Cardinal Roger Mahoney provides a more positive view. The video blog contains exclusive video clips, never before seen by the public.
