Bond Placed on Ballot

July 12, 2002

The Los Angeles Board of Education has voted unanimously to place a $3.35-billion school construction bond measure on the November ballot (July 10). This is an approximate 50% increase over the amount of Proposition BB, which was passed in 1997, and the new bond purports to handle many of the same problems that we were told Proposition BB would solve. From recent reports I gather that the money from Proposition BB is gone, and yet the problems remain.

Is a record school bond measure really the only solution?

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice.... Let the rallying cry sound: We won't be fooled again!
