LOS ANGELES, CA — Newly hired LAUSD principal Janice Williams thinks she can actually make a difference. A veteran of the education system, Williams has taught for ten years in LAUSD, and now believes that her promotion to principal at Los Angeles High will finally impact the students in ways that will impart change. Williams announced in a statement that “being a principal will give me more exposure to more students and allow me to be a stronger influence in this system. I hope to have 90% of our students graduating in three years. We can do it!” Her statement failed to acknowledge the suffocating bureaucracy the staunch teachers union, or the fact that most of the students are already at a disadvantage because of socio-economic issues. The janitor at Los Angeles High gives her two years.
