Is anyone minding the store?

Los Angeles superintendent John Deasy made a commercial for Apple long before his board voted support for a $1 billion purchase of iPads for every student.

His deputy Jaime Aquino worked for Pearson-owned America’s Choice. He was in charge of the iPad purchase, which became a major embarrassment for Deasy and the LAUSD board. Aquino resigned his $250,000 a year job, but won’t actually leave until the end of the year.

The iPads are loaded with…..surprise!…Pearson content.

Will voters ever approve another bond issue, now that they know whatever new funds they approve will be spent on whatever the superintendent of the moment wants to do?
