Dear Stephanie Monroe:
We have exchanged email messages in the past, regarding my complaints against the California State University at Los Angeles. I testify that my statements are true. Please review and comment on the particulars of my formal written complaint.
#1 I strongly ascertain that Cal State University at Los Angeles actively promulgates a culture of institutionalized discriminations against myself and other students in these ways: disability status, age, gender, race and religious background. My hard drive crashed so I will have to send you, soon, those rescued files.
#2 The particulars: I have sustained major health problems as well as work-related injuries when I taught high school English at Firebaugh in Lynwood, California. The LUSD has recently been in the national news because Firebaugh’s disgraced former principal, Jonas Silverio, was arrested at the LAX airport and charged with seventeen (17) counts of felonious child molestations. Silverio delegated a non-rehire status to me and countless other teachers who blew the whistle on him. The administrators at Firebaugh High School, the LUSD board, and the Lynwood City Council are extremely corrupt, perverted and likewise felons-as-accomplices in the sexual misconduct of Jonas Silverio. In other words, they “covered” for him. In the meantime, young female volleyball players have to live with Silverio’s ravenous rape and sexual abuse memories for the rest of their lives.
I am registered with the OSD (The Office for Students with Disabilities) at CSLA. I enrolled in TVF 365, Course #12376, for the summer 2009 session. This class is listed as an “Advanced Scriptwriting Class” and was supposed to be taught by Professor Enrique Berumen. Instead, Lee Iriwn, an adjunct teacher, is teaching this class. Irwin showed up late to class, wearing a T shirt and jeans, hardly proper attire for a so-called university professor. Her syllabus did not exist. She had no office hours or phone or email contacts. She moved the class across the hallway for what unkown reason and then moved us back, again. The following week she did not make the effort to contact us that she had moved this class from King Hall B4007 to a room in the music building on the second floor. She left a note on that room, saying that the class had been moved to the room on the first floor because the air conditioning was not working. I am sick, injured and disabled. I have heart disease, COPD, asthma, and major injuries to my neck, my back, both knees, my right wrist, a broken left TMJ, a broken tendon in my right shoulder as well as ongoing depression due to the neglectful abuse of the California Workers Compensation program. I have not received one red cent in monetary benefits or adequate medical care or psychological counseling in over two years now. I am a devout follower of Saint Francis, Caesar Chavez, Mahatma Ghandi, and Martin Luther King, Junior. I am a non-violent human being who believes in the implementation of state and federal laws to rectify differences. The elevator did not work in that music building, which is common at CSLA. This so-called university is cheap as they do not repair the broken infrastructure, in the midst of over one billion dollars in reserve. It was nearly 100 degrees Farenheit that day so I discontinued the Mad Hatter’s Ride because I had heat stroke. I have a sick note from Dr. Zielinski of the CSLA Student Health Center. I never heard from Irwin in the next week. I gave her, at our next class meeting, the sick note and a letter from the Office for Students with Disabilities that demands “reasonable accommodations” under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. She basically ignored this mandate and gave me 2 out of 10 grade for being late and not agreeing with her lock-step academics. I am filing a formal written grievance against this so-called university professor for various discriminations. Letycia Gomez, the perfunctory manager of the CSLA Office for Judicial Affairs, continues to do nothing for me and my fellow students. She is the University’s “hatchet-woman,” if you will, as she only backs up the CSLA’s Draconian policies.
On Monday, March 30, 2009, I went to the room for my TVF class that was supposed to be taught by Jon Dupre. He left a note on the classroom door, saying that he had “taken this day off in celebration of Caesar Chavez and would be at a party in the CSLA Student Union.” Dupre just gave himself permission to take two days off and waste taxpayers’ monies. I saw him the next week as I had a chiropractor’s appointment and came to class 45 minutes into the class. He had blocked the entrance with a TV/monitor. He barked at me that I was late and I immediately responded that I was at a doctor’s appointment. I sad that “I was very sick and very injured. This jerk so-called professor tried to embarrass me in front of this class by pontificating, “Well, maybe you are not fit enough to take this rigorous class.” That is funny because I have not experienced anything that even approximates “academic rigor” at CSLA. This place is literally a bad joke.
On Saturday, April 4, 2009 at 9 am, I drove 35 miles roundtrip to CSLA, only to be rejected by another discriminating teacher named Bridget Murname. She was late and told me in no uncertain terms, “What are you doing here?” She was belligerent. There was room for more than twenty students and I was the fifth person in that room. She added that I was too far behind. I find that interesting because most CSLA so-called University professors spend the first class by wasting time to go over the class syllabus, which, by-the-way, is not a legal and binding contract, regardless. Also, mot CSLA teachers do not hold a class on the designated time for finals (more wasted taxpayers’ dollars for laxy and whimsical teachers). I told her that I would file a grievance against her for her non-chalance and discriminations against me.
I am also filing a complaint against two students, Patricia Tone and another soon-to-be-named student, in the Communications Studies Department. Patricia Tone is a bigot and a harassing academic bully. In front of the comedy sitcom production class, she said that “Wayne is too slow to move props around the stage and he can’t walk.” More specifics will follow, soon. The second student, last week in my acting class, a female student was likewise discriminatory against me. I read a poem called “Two Women.” This thoughtless student piped up and likewise pontificated that “Wayne is not a woman, middle class or young,” which means that he has absolutely no business in reading this poem in this class. I was aghast. I will file an addendum to this complaint and send you her name as well.
Please review and re-open previous complaints against the Charter School of Education at CSLA, the Special Education Department, that I had filed with your San Francisco office. I AM REQUESTING THAT YOUR WASHINGTON, D.C. OFFICE HANDLE MY COMPLAINT BECAUSE GEMINI MC CLASLLAND OF THE SAN FRANCISCO OFFICE ON BEALE STREET IS NOT DILIGENT IN HER AFFAIRS. SHE HAD SENT ME TWO LETTERS THAT DENIED MY CLAIMS. HER LETTERS WERE FORM LETTERS FROM HER SPUPERIOR AND THEY DID NOT EVEN COME CLOSE TO ADDRESSING MY CONCERNS.
I HEREBY ASSERT THAT CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY AT LOS ANGELES HAS DISCRIMINATED AGAINST ME IN THE FORMS OF RACE, GENDER, DISABILITY STATUS, AGE, RELIGION AND BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN A “WHISTLE-BLOWER” AGAINST THIS SO-CALLED UNIVERSITY.
I humbly request that you, Stephanie Monroe, re-open my previous complaints against the Charter School of Education, the Special Education Department, at Cal State University at Los Angeles. I do not want the same non-chalance from Attorney Gemini Mc Clasland in your San Francisco Office.
I am carbon-copying this letter to my United States Congressman, Henry A. Waxman, and to my United States California Senators, Barbara Boxer and Dianne Fienstein.
CSLA has also illegally delayed my Federal Student Loan as that is just their way of “paying back” those students who have the cohones to criticize their gross malfeasance.
I sincerely thank you, Stephanie Monroe, for taking the time to read this, my formal written complaint, against the California State University at Los Angeles for various civil rights discriminations.
Carbon copies: Henry A. Waxman, Senators Fienstein and Boxer.
Enclosures: Correspondence to and from myself and Letycia Gomez as well as Lee Irwin.
Various verifiable documents that constitute evidence to enhance my complaints.
