Sheriff Lee Baca – former Adult Ed teacher – says cutting Adult Ed is a mistake

Sheriff Lee Baca talks about his experience teaching at Garfield Adult School in early 1970s. Cutting Adult Education is, “counter-productive to building a great society,” he said on June 8 at the Homeboy Town Hall hosted by Father Boyle.

“In certain communities, like my community, the Latino community, we’re almost afraid to walk onto a school campus…..When we…go into the classroom and start to get comfortable with our ability to learn things –why would anyone want to take that away…?”  –Sheriff Lee Baca on proposed cuts to Adult Education in LAUSD
