Remember when Burbank voters were told that one of the big plans behind the last three expensive bond issues was to replace aging bungalows with actual permanent buildings?
Instead, you’ve gotten crap.
Burbank Unified officials broke ground for two new modular classroom buildings at Robert Louis Stevenson Elementary School on Monday, April 17.
The new buildings replace the aging, existing portable classrooms with more modern facilities and is funded by the Burbank voter-approved Measure S Bond.
“It will be nice to get our teachers and students out of the bungalows and into permanent classrooms,” said Principal Christina Desiderio…
Ralph Waldo Emerson, Theodore Roosevelt and George Washington Elementary Schools were the first sites that received the new permanent modular classroom buildings. Emerson has four new modular classrooms, Roosevelt has six new classrooms and new restrooms and Washington has eight new classrooms and new restrooms.
These aren’t true permanent buildings, and it’s not what we were told years ago this money would be used for.
Another thing. Are these union employees who build this junk?
No? If not, why not?
This coming from the same crowd that lied through their teeth about why they got rid of most of the district’s Log Cabins a few years ago (it was some ridiculous story about an unavailability of “replacement parts”).
Log Cabins which by the way were not built as cheap WPA projects. They were contracted for well into the 1920s. Lincoln’s bid notice showed up in an old issue of Southwest Builder and Contractor somewhere around 1920.
