Broken System or Just Stupid Voters

Most everyone seems to think that we need to do something to fix the public school system in California. The Teachers Unions seem to think that the solution to the problems are more money. The Victor Valley School District thinks paying their superintendant an insane amount of money is the solution. Now the voters in the Romoland School District has found a novel solution to the problem. They elected a new School Board Member who is currently in jail for violating his parole on 1998 convictions for spousal abuse and drug possession.

Yeah, that's the ticket, lets elect people to control our school districts who beat their spouses and abuse drugs, then violate their parole and get tossed back into jail again. Yeah, that's just the kind of guy they need working for the good of their school children.

I don't know if this is just one more sign that the public school system in California is completely screwed up, or is it evidence that the voting masses in California really don't have a clue what they are doing when they enter a voting booth?

OK, I have to admit that attempting to condemn the entire state school system or all the voters in the state of California based on the small sample that voted in for this election in Riverside County is misleading. But you have to wonder, how bad were the two candidates who lost to this guy?
