Los Cerritos News has commenced a new series delving into the “underworld” of school bonds. The eight part series will look at recently passed school bond measures, in and around Los Angeles County, with a timely stop at Inglewood Unified School District.
Inglewood property owners continue to be swindled out of their money, via school bonds, for a dysfunctional and failing school district.
But that’s nothing compared to Inglewood Unified School District’s Measure I. That wave started at $240 million, but crested at well over $469 Million.
This ruse began when voters passed Measure GG, in 2012, while the local newspaper, Inglewood Today, avoided telling residents the school district was going under state control, the month before the vote.
Residents were asked for another bond, last November, called Measure I. Despite nearly a $1 billion in school bonds being approved, the district is laying off employees, and currently accepting applications to close (consolidate) schools due to the continued declining enrollment.
This is the same school district that took COVID funds and spent $100,000 on splashy graduation ceremonies at SoFi Stadium, as opposed to paying the employees who continued to work through the pandemic.
When will Inglewood voters wake up?
