O.C. or Orange County is one of the richest areas in California.

Odd. The link lists FERMIN LEAL and SCOTT MARTINDALE as the authors.
But clearly you have claimed authorship, demonstrated above.
Isn’t that crazy how that happens?
Here is the caption from the photo:
Jeanne Matson, center, a fifth-grade teacher at Prospect Elementary in Orange, works with students on their social studies project to built a Native American village in this 2011 file photo. Prospect Elementary had among the county’s strongest improvements on the API in 2011.
Unions, a useless border policy and a Commie cirriculum eventually lead to someone like Obama rising, promising goodies and freebies for a vote.
CA is lost, I live here, but want to move.
As a wise elder once said: “He wouldn’t say s*** if his mouth was full of it.” IOW, it’s doubtful this person could recognize cold, hard facts without trying to put a spin on it.
It looks like it shows I posted it here and link to the authors and what they wrote.

Yes, I’m dreadfully sorry you attributed the material fraudulently.
Clearly I am in the wrong. I shall try harder in the future

President Obama announced a new education program today. It is titled THE NO UNION TEACHER LEFT BEHIND ACT.
“The only way to truly measure academic success is to see how much money the employees give to the Democrat party”, he said.
This is the same Orange County written about in an article by a teacher who was upset that parents are pulling their kids out in droves to homeschool, telling her they have no faith in the public schools and they aren’t even worth trying to fix. The article appeared in my local paper last year.
Some parts of Orange County are heavily Mexican, such as Santa Ana and Anaheim. Irvine and the areas along the coast are affluent.
The author field is for the author of the article, not the poster, edcoil.
