Recall effort launched against Hacienda La Puente Unified school board

Those opposed to a Chinese-government-funded teaching program have launched a recall effort against four members of the Hacienda La Puente Unified School District. Organizers last week turned in intent-to-recall forms against board members Norman Hsu, Jay Chen, Anita Perez and Joseph Chang.

The form is a precursor to circulating a petition and obtaining signatures for a recall. Petitioners said the effort was spurred by the decision by school board members to support the Confucius Classroom, a Chinese-culture program funded by China’s government.

Retired school district superintendent John Kramar said those text books are filled with one-sided propaganda that is approved by the Chinese government.
