Los Angeles, CA.
Learn how the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) managed to spend over a half a Billion dollars building the still incomplete (2007) Belmont Learning Center, renamed Vista Hermosa. Now available in a Documentary Collectors Series of 23 DVDs. Watch 7 min preview here.
The Full Disclosure Network® has recorded the historical battle within the L.A. school district that started back in 1994. Fourteen years later the school has never been occupied, partially demolished and under re-construction, with costs mounting.

From start to finish, find out how the L.A. Unified School District got into this mess and hear the participants offer their opinions regarding who was responsible.
“Belmont: The World’s Most Expensive High School” DVD collectors series provides in-depth background of the deep conflict between an out of control school district and unaccountable administrators who, empowered by a political powerful law firm, confounded the issues of conflicting interest. The participants describe the frustration of the investigators who were neutered by a District Attorney whose political ambitions rendered him unable to take action.

Comprised of ten interviews with experts each describe their role:
  • Planning & Development
  • Legal & Financing
  • Toxic hazards
  • Investigation of fraud.
  • Purchase of land
  • Failure to prosecute crimes

Each DVD contains two-part interviews with the major players involved, and the series includes two summary programs: “The Best of Belmont” and “The Black Hole of School Construction” and include exclusive footage of the December 2004 demolition of 60 percent of the brand new, never occupied buildings.
