Irrelevant only to cowards, bullies, and those with no practical experience. Which are you? Or isRead More the best you can offer is another rousing volley of "Na-na-na-na-boo-boo?"

@russell, removing tenure does not remove due process protections, as you claim. Tenure is not theRead More only thing that needs to change. Teaching is a difficult job. One made more difficult by bureaucratic largess and a great deal of parental interference. I'd like to see an increase in managerial power along with performance based salaries. Pay teachers teach. Enable them to control their classrooms. Removing tenure is a good first step. There's a lot of dead wood in our teacher ranks. They need incentives to produce. They also need the tools.

We have to make people aware that our State is run by public employee Unions and we need court casesRead More like today which ruled that the California Teacher Tenure rules are unconstitutional so that we can change laws and vote people out of office who do not represent the interests of the public who pay the taxes.

Something that is interesting to note is that high school grads are going to four year universitiesRead More and studying subject that isn't marketable. While on the other hand you have people getting vocational training at vocational schools that essentially guarantees them a job out of school that will make them 'x' amount of money. So it isn't that college degrees are worthless, some are. It is also said that sometimes trade school is the right choice!

I think this is probably one of the best civics lessons these kids will ever have - every studentRead More ought to have to do this. **** Jeremiah

This is a disgrace that an elected official would go to a middle school and use profanity. It has noRead More bearing that "The kids have heard it before". This is not appropriate language by any public speaker in any format. Once again he speaks before thinking. Read between the lines here the kids were bored and he got angry at seeing the crowd not paying attention and reacted inappropriately. I guarantee you Mike Hestrin does not cuss when he teaches his college students. Just another classless act by a classless man. Let's make a change and elect Mike Hestrin for DA June 3, 2014.

For me to help my family whenever they're need help, I downloaded this application calledRead More SafeKidZone. This application can locate your love ones and it also has a 24/7/365 call center agents that can easily escalate the call to 911. I am suggesting you to use this application because it doesn't only monitor your love ones but also to locate sex offenders so that you can atleast asure that your kids are safe, also has a family locator that will let you know where your family's are. To know all about this, check it out here: http://safekidzone.com/#!/page_home

Why should anyone be upset about this. Arabs should be PROUD that we make them a mascot for aRead More football team. I think that is great. We should salute the Arabs by doing that. I lived in Saudi Arabia for six months working there and I had a great time with Arabs - they gave me so much food I was stuffed. Has an Arab person COMPLAINED that we honor Arabia by making a mascot of an Arab? Ahsalamlekum; Walekum Salam (sp?)

CAIR never once offered even an admonishment for the 9/11 perps....not once.

i'd change the mascot to a crusader on horseback jabbing a sword through a grounded rag's heart.Read More this would strike fear into the opposing team...no?

The image is from the 30's. Oddly enough no one from the Arab defamation group even showed up. It'sRead More kind of ironic that this group would want it removed considering our countries current feelings about the Middle East. To be honest, the less scarves, turbans, camels and oil wells people are reminded of, the better. In other words, they are keeping the image DESPITE our political and sometimes racist views. So what if it's got a big nose and beard. I know! Keep the logo and change yourselves to "The Godfathers!!" The equestrian team would be EPIC!

How about we all get off of this politically correct thing. Everyone is insulted about somethingRead More part of the time. Some people are insulted about something most of the time. No one is insulted none of the time. Perhaps mascots should only be non-sentient objects in shades of gray, no shades of shade color. Or perhaps we could eliminate everyone that has a discrimination problem.

So why no picture of this "offensive" mascot in the story? 4.2 seconds on the internetRead More and it pops up, and it looks like Popeye with a towel on his head. Odd how nobody's complaining about Hollywood High School having an arab (Sheiks) as a mascot, but maybe it being a handsome figure has something to do with it. Seems it's not the name that's a problem, but the unflattering character. I love hypocrisy.

What about the Coachella High Crackers? Huh, can you picture it? Sounds pretty good, right? Okay,Read More then maybe the Coachella Klansmen? Pretty catchy.
