A judge has rejected Lodi Unified School District's request to dismiss a lawsuit relating to the molestation of a special-needs student by a bus driver.

The civil action alleges that district officials hired part-time bus driver Richard Dale Evans in 2003, despite knowing he had a misdemeanor conviction for having sex with a Stockton prostitute in a delivery truck just a few years prior.

    Think LUSD is bad? Look at Galt with two school districts and two sets of administrators. Just how can waste like that be tolerated, or even legal, in such a small town as Galt. LUSD has job layers of administrators that are in all reality doing th same job under a different title with no accountability to worry about, just those fat paychecks.

    I agree with Jerry, we need to rid our society of most top heavy administration. Howevern I think local administration is not where to start. How about the Department of education where billions are spent yet not one student is invlved. Before we begin getting rid of local admisistrators, hidden administrators in Washingtn should be first.

    As far as this law suit... absurd.

    What needs to be expunged is Lodi USD employees in the Taj Majal on the East Side and sell that colossal waste of money for whatever we can get. Why do we need those people? They are just middlemen feeding from the children's trough. It is "make work" for someones buddy.

    Every Principal of every school is capable of managing their own school (well maybe not the one at Bear Creek). The Cafeteria workers and the maintenance workers of each school are intelligent enough to make better decisions than this article brings to light. There are teachers willing to manage their own funds. What is wrong with that? Hiding behind a poorly written law is despicable. Being sheltered by a questionable chain of management is even worse. Take Penn State as your example of what this will get you.
