Have you heard “The Big lie” coming out of Inglewood Unified School District?
The big lie within the Inglewood Unified School District is top management stating the school buses are not safe to operate. A senior manager, who has no experience in this area, has spread this clearly false statement throughout the district, and beyond.
CHP is the one and only agency that regulates the school buses. If you do not believe this, call them and look at the Department of Transportation website which CHP sends to Washington.
However, lets us look into the District false statement:
- If the buses are all broken, how did this just happen?
- If it is true, why did the District wait until two days into the return to Schools to close down the fleet?
- If they were all broken, why did IUSD allow the broken buses out for those two days?
They claim the buses were leaking oil.
- Well, we have the photo after the bus was pulled out and no oil on the ground.
- Anyone who owns a car knows about this.
- What was IUSD top management doing to fix the so-called problem?
Remember IUSD schools were shut down for over a year.
- That should be time to repair the broken down fleet.
- What about the new buses that the District just got?
- Are they also broken?
We and most employees at IUSD do not think so.
- The odds that all the buses are broken at the same time is hard to believe.
- Therefore, we do not believe the big lie and anyone with any common sense do not believe it.
We challenge IUSD to allow the CHP to inspect all the buses in plain view of all the transportation workers.
IUSD wants to bring in a District paid person to look at the bus.
Therefore, the big lie continues.
