Yolande Beckles Moves Base From Rosewood Avenue To Hollywood High

Those familiar with the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (20 U.S.C. 6301 et seq.) will know that it is a US Federal Statute and part of the progressive "Great Society" program of the 36th President of the United States, Lyndon Baines Johnson. "Title I" of the Act is a set of programs set up by the United States Department of Education to distribute funding to schools and school districts which typically have 40% or more of its students coming from low-income families. Schools receiving "Title I" funding are regulated by federal legislation, including the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. Details of the Act, including its associated federal funding appropriations, can be found here. I guess quite a lot of Title I funding has found its way to Hollywood Senior High School, judging by the logo "Home Of The Sheiks". Hollywood High even has its own Title I office, supervising the way in which those funds are managed and distributed.

A Title I office is hardly the sort of place you would expect to find a misappropriator of funds. Especially one who had only recently been thrown out of another Hollywood school as "a disruptive influence" and who had been the subject of a two-page exposé in a national Sunday newspaper alledging serial fraud and theft. So perhaps someone would like to call the Title I number on the school website and ask Miss Yolande Beckles just exactly what she's doing there.


  1. So Yolande, what exactly are you doing there?

  2. I am showing them wannabees how to be a real media star, like wot I is.
