Mt. Diablo Unified (in Contra Costa County) Public Advocates UCP to MDUSD 2016-08-09 Oak Grove…
The Long Beach Unified School District (LBUSD) is violating state law by misallocating more than $40 million of state education funding that is specifically designed to increase or improve services for low-income students, English language learners and foster youth.
“This bothers me, and makes me very angry,” said Guadalupe Luna, who currently has three children in the district. “If this money was meant to help high need students, why is it being used this way? This is illegal and needs to be brought to public light. It’s upsetting that in a country like ours injustices like these happen and no one stops them when the law says this is the district’s responsibility. Where is the help?”
