Ivy Academia, a cozy charter school, publicly funded, has two things going for it. Nice aesthetic modern style paint on the walls, after transforming a commercial building into classrooms and a bankroll from LAUSD ensuring that their uniquely defined education regimen is a diversion from the traditional public school path. But don't be fooled. Behind properly, iconoclast terms of a misconceived mission, are breaches in public contracts that ensure necessity in a uniform discipline policy and support staff that helps other schools function. My first day subbing there created a scenario where I was absolved by misfits of inappropriate language, the excuse of violent speech factored into an IEP, and loose customs which enabled kids to do what they want. Find out the hidden deceit of a Los Angeles Charter school and why its not a model school.
