Hilda Solis, the US Secretary of Labor, was at La Puente HS today, and I was asked to go to mention CVUSD's closing three schools that all happen to be low-income Spanish-speaking. I passed the time of day with her staff at their table in the high school gym and left them with a few words concerning that matter and, of course, http://www.peterattwood.net, so they can read about what CVUSD has been doing to Stephen these past two years. The Secretary of Labor has nothing directly to do with a situation like this, but she does get to sit in the same room as Arne Duncan once in a while, and she seems to still have some concern for those that get ripped off, so who knows?
She and another speaker told how a Puente HS guidance counselor told her when she was in school that she wasn't college material but that she would make a good secretary. It turned out she was college material, so he was wrong about that, but she did end up becoming a secretary - Secretary of Labor!
