Leonard Isenberg: Rather than once and for all fixing this longstanding and purposefully failed public education system, they have decided to “fix” the public education system by eliminating any objective standard of what is acceptable work.
Leonard Isenberg is a second generation teacher in LAUSD. He graduated from Monroe High School in 1964 with an excellent public school education that has allowed hime to earn three college degrees: BA in European History- UCLA, Doctor of Jurisprudence- Golden Gate University, and a Masters in Education- UCLA. The exceptional education he received as a basis for his later higher education has given him the ability to be successful as a producer in the motion picture business, a professor of comparative law in France, and a social studies teacher at various locations in Los Angeles. His life experience both here and in Europe motivates him to work for the creation of a first rate public education system here in Los Angeles and elsewhere in the United States, which he unequivocally believes is the prerequisite for dealing with the myriad of problems that we presently face as a society.
