: : I agree with a lot of what you say, but it is true of all public schools not just LAUSD.
: : The bottom line is there are good teachers and schools everywhere if you are willing to get to them. Even in LAUSD there are plenty of high quality Magnet programs.
: : The point is minimizing the difference between public/private to make the $$$$ not worth it to automatically go private.
: The only good coach in the city is the Granada coach. Although, I have to give Judi her props for her second half coaching in the city championship game. She made a ton of adjustments and the coach from the other team didn't make any.
Honest question - you love the Granada coach. The number of times you have said he is the only good coach in the City is too many to keep track of.
I think he is a good coach, but there are others. Torino at Palisades, Judi, old coach at ECR, Taft, Birmingham, Eagle Rock. And I'm sure there are some more, even at the lower divisions.
But I have seen them all make big mistakes that have cost their team games - for example Torino not going to zone in Finals last year. I have seen your guy Honig not make adjustments several times.
I'm not bagging on any of these coaches, just wondering what your fascination with Honig is.
Did you play there? Or does your daughter? Again, just wondering.
