And unfortunately a lot of that big pay goes to 'administrators' making over six figures rather than teachers
LAUSD Salaries Database: How much does every employee in the district make?

Yeah I get being superintentent of LAUSD is probably not an easy job...but $440,000 salary??
Former LAUSD superintendent Deasy’s pay nearly $440,000 last year

Those top officials in LAUSD likely get a lot of perks too , at the state level University presidents get huge housing and car allowances too even though they usually make over $250,000 a year.

It's kind of interesting, the more you make the more benefits you get.

It is more than the president's salary ($400,000) - and the LAUSD superintendent is not the only position in California which has a salary higher than the president.

No public official should be paid more than the US president.

The US President gets even more perks, and with those perks for a private citizen to live like that, that person would need to have income of 30 million a year. The President gets free food, free domestic service, free armed guards, free transportation including free airforce flights, paid for travel expenses, etc.

The boundaries spread over 720 square miles and include the mega-city of Los Angeles as well as all or parts of 31 smaller municipalities plus several unincorporated sections of Southern California."

LAUSD doesn't seem to be suffering from a shortage of children. I think you're projecting your own biases onto the current situation.

Do you have actual stats that demonstrate family flight from Westside neighborhoods covered by LAUSD? If it's just people you know that alone doesn't count as the people we know in our personal lives don't necessarily reflect demographic trends.

The numbers in LAUSD overall have declined, although it's still way too big to function, and needs to be broken up. No school district should have more than 100,000 kids.

LAUSD's numbers keep on dropping

However, I was talking specifically about the Westside, where age 11-18 is the smallest age demographic.

I live here and I'm from here. I've seen these things play out. You have not. Families who care about their kids generally do not live in LAUSD although there are some exceptions. Families who don't care about their kids, don't care.

I never went to any LAUSD school, but I always wondering when did the district start becoming a disgrace.

My guess was during the white flight during the 60's and 70's when the new LAUSD Superintendent didn't go to her local high school and the folks with children in the westside school she went to started withdrawing from public schools

I think if the Valley would have been successful in forming its own city, or at least it's own school district, that the "Valley ISD" and LAUSD would be better off today. As it is right now, I agree, just way too big.
