Los Angeles Wants a $7 Billion School Facilities Bond for Closed Schools

Los Angeles elections and their usual ritual bond and tax hike proposals seem to be an intelligence test. If you vote for them, you fail. But lately the tests are becoming a little too obvious.

The school board Tuesday also is expected to consider putting a $7 billion school facilities bond before voters in November.

What facilities?

The Los Angeles Unified School District and the union representing teachers announced a tentative agreement Monday on how to proceed with distance learning this fall. Efforts will be focused on providing a structured school day as campuses remain closed due to the coronavirus...

In the meantime, school campuses will physically remain closed.

It costs $7 billion to keep campuses closed?

I guess we'll find out if there's any bond issue that Los Angeles voters won't vote for.
