For a state having to issue IOUs, this was very disturbing LA unveils $578M school, costliest in the nation [i] The RFK complex follows on the heels of two other LA schools among the nation's costliest — the $377 million Edward R. Roybal Learning Center, which opened in 2008, and the $232 million Visual and Performing Arts High School that debuted in 2009.[/i] http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100822/ap_on_re_us/us_taj_mahal_schools To be fair this is funded by a designated tax that people paid. But you would think when the state was going in the toilet, they wouldnt have needed it so fancy... How do you feel about this blatant misuse of funds? California schools have a 50% drop out rate, do you think this will take care of that?

The emptiness and empty-headedness and pervasive vanity that pervade Hollywood and the so-called "intellectuals" of more northern areas in CA also pervade what purports to be the school system. CA schools are a disaster worth only running from.

I agree this is why I was so floored by this. Look at the people that were educated in a one room school house. Or the fact that homeschooled kids do so much better. It is NOT the building but whats inside.
