Carl Petersen who has two special-needs daughters within the LAUSD, addressed the board over the issue.
"I would've thought the district would have learned its lessons from Miramonte and the millions of dollars you paid out in claims," he said, referring to a former LAUSD elementary school teacher convicted of sexually abusing students. "This is one of the reasons we have financial problems."
"They look for short-term results. And right now the only thing they have on their minds is how to staff those schools and keep them open."
He calls the board's decision a disaster waiting to happen.
"Unfortunately some kid is going to pay the price," Petersen said.
