Why shouldn’t Valley reap benefits of reform?

first_imgLast week, we learned that not one San Fernando Valley school is being considered for inclusion as part of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s privately funded takeover of 334 schools, and only one Valley school is being considered as one of the 44 low-performing schools that Superintendent David Brewer III plans to target for extra attention. That hardly seems fair, considering that the Valley is home to nearly 40 percent of the city’s population and pays a lot more in taxes than it gets in return. Apparently some Valley schools have opted to steer clear of the two heavily politicized reform efforts. Others weren’t as low-performing as those elsewhere in the city, or were undertaking their own efforts. It’s the same old story of misguided municipal socialism: Valley residents commit less crime, so they get inferior police services; Valley students perform better in class, so they get no help; Valley taxpayers pay more so they get less back.

Brewer will carve out his 44 low-performing schools and give them the autonomy to use their resources their own ways. Both are focusing on the neediest schools, which is what consistently happens with city resources. But why shouldn’t Valley schools have the same opportunity to undertake the benefits of self-governance and autonomy? If innovation is good for poor performing schools, it’s certainly good for all schools. And there’s a way to do this without legislation, lawsuits or elections: Give charter reformer Yvonne Chan, principal at the Vaughn Next Century Learning Center, an equal amount of Valley schools to reform. She won’t even need the donations from the mayor’s rich patrons. That’s because the Valley cares, and would rally behind her to make sure that Chan’s cluster of schools in the Northeast Valley showed greater improvement than either the mayor’s or Brewer’s. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
