CAN THE ONE L.A. ORGANIZATION "MAKE DEMOCRACY WORK"?

Can the One L.A. Organization"make democracy work" again in Los Angeles? Not without addressing a still segregated and purposefully dumbed down LAUSD that is exclusively run for the benefit of its entrenched bureaucracy and the obscene profits of their corporate vendors' interests that keep them in power. There is not one issue of social disruption that One L.A. is trying to address that wouldn't be put to bed by the kind of vibrant public education that used exist as the most effective means of societal integration in the 1950s and 1960s by giving folks the education and well-compensated work they are entitled to.

One L.A. is a multi-ethnic and community organization that for many years now has been trying to reach across Los Angeles' diverse ethnic communities to try and address issues like gun violence, that continues to take 300 lives a year in the city. It is also concerned with affordable housing and homelessness in a city where those of moderate income have more and more been forced out of their homes as prices for both ownership and rentals goes way beyond the ability of those of moderate income to afford. But most of all, what One L.A. is trying to do in the aggregate is tap into the strengthens of these diverse communities to form a truly unified democratic coalition to increase the chances of success and quality of life for all Angelenos.

However, what I felt regrettable about this meeting was a failure to link the aforementioned issues of concern as a predictable result of LAUSD failing to give the vast majority of its still segregated students- who are socially promoted through it without an education- any skills that might keep them from being homeless, imprisoned or dead.
