Not good enough…

A recent survey concludes that one in five students at LA Community College District schools are homeless and 2/3 of the students don’t have enough to eat.   By any measure,  this is a crisis and an embarrassment for the region.

These are mainly young people who are struggling to improve themselves while facing substantial hardship.

If there are 230,000 students in the system, then 46,000 are technically homeless. Here’s one idea: take the salary of an LA Clipper who is likely to receive $175 million for five years and instead spread that  amount of money over the 46,000 students that are homeless.

Seems like a slam dunk –A much better investment in our society…
