Statement: "That vote angered the Democratic Latino Caucus, many of whose members supported the textbook proposal. In response, Democrats in the Assembly and Senate education subcommittees stripped the board's funding from the state budget for the new fiscal year, which began July 1."

Response: There is not even the strength left to resist the alien takeover. An example of the meaning of the terms 'a degenerate people.'

That's what happens when you put idiots in charge of government.

Sounds like Alice in Wonderland.

The loss of the board's $1.6 million annual staff budget...
...
Instead, the governor signed the first on-time state budget in six years without dealing with the missing money.

I guess you have to make cuts somewhere not to grow the budget more than the $18 billion (16%) increase over last year's budget. (/sarcasm)

Seriously, though, maybe this is a good way to start cutting the power of the CA education bloc, even though it is impossible to return education administration to local control. It sounds like the board did not want a second-class set of textbooks for the English learners, yet Democrat legislators want to ensure English "learners" remain sub par. If more Californians know this, perhaps there will be a backlash against the Democrats. Or, at least, maybe the Democrats will waste time arguing amongst themselves.

When Davis was elected, he thought he could just move in and change everything. He discovered that the Department of Education didn't have to bow to him; so he started a SECOND department which would kowtow to him. THEN THERE WERE TWO.

I wonder how this fits in with that...?

In the 1920's my grandma taught 2nd grade in a small town in the San Joaquin Valley. There was a large influx of Russians. The children would begin school at the their respective levels of English comprehension and move through the grades at individual paces.

Grandma told of having big, 15-year-old boys sitting at tables in the back of the class. They listened and studied and moved on to the next grade as soon as their English allowed.

Sen. Martha Escutia, D-Whittier, who initially led the movement to strip the board's funding, has a bill pending that would restore the money. But it would require approval of the controversial bilingual textbooks that sparked the initial feud.

This stunt is force the return of bilingual text books not get rid of them.
