Los Angeles officials displeased with some of reality TV show’s renovations

District spent $100,000 to repaint substandard painting at middle school

From The Los Angeles Times: Los Angeles school officials reluctantly allowed the reality television show “School Pride” onto campuses with promises of remodeling, then got stuck with a substandard paint job at one school, and at another school a misleading "reenactment" of an event that never occurred. Some of the work at the two schools went well, and the show still has local fans, especially because it inspired community volunteerism and school spirit. But some in the Los Angeles Unified School District are annoyed, at the least because the school system is spending more than $100,000 to repaint Hollenbeck Middle School.
