Protecting public schools

When will the top administrators of California public schools wake up and use common sense to protect public schools that are supported by the taxpayers?

The public schools are being broken into, electronic equipment is being stolen, classrooms are being vandalized and/or set on fire.

If the top administrators would use the brains that they were given they would require that all public schools that are either being constructed or renovated have fire suppression systems installed, as well as burglar alarm systems.

They should also have camera systems installed that will be activated by movement in the buildings and halls. These administrators and principals do not seem too concerned by the damage to the public schools as they know the taxpayers will foot the bill to repair and restore the damaged schools and stolen equipment.

Each public school has a budget item to maintain the structures but it seems that the administrators and principals would rather have classrooms with leaking roofs so that the structure can be damaged beyond the repair, and they can have taxpayers build new rooms or entire schools.

It is time for the taxpayers to wake up and tell the administrators to wake up or look for another job.
