According to THP, prior to joining LPFI, Schwartz “spent three years as Chief Academic Officer for Inner City Education Foundation (ICEF) Public Schools in South Los Angeles, leading the strategic expansion of the academic program from 3 schools with 500 students to 15 schools with almost 4,000 students. As instructional leader, Robert facilitated the curricular design of the charter organization’s rigorous academic program with the goal to prepare students to attend and compete academically at top colleges and universities. Prior to serving as ICEF’s CAO, Robert was the founding principal at ICEF’s flagship high school, where he led its growth from 93 to 375 students. Under Robert’s direction, the first three classes achieved a 100% graduation rate with 97 percent accepted to four-year universities. Three years later, 73 percent of the students are still enrolled in college. As a 1994 Teach for America corps member, Robert spent seven years at his placement site in East Los Angeles. He was twice named teacher of the year and was made lead teacher and science department chairperson in his second year. Robert graduated cum laude from Binghamton University with a double major in Biology and Classical Languages, and earned his MA in Urban Education Policy Planning.”

Jarvis Sulcer, an African-American, “joined LPFI in 2007, first as Academic Director and most recently serving as the Director of Education overseeing the SMASH and IDEAL programs. He brings with him a deep passion for our mission and experience in making an impact through education. He will lead LPFI in expanding the impact of its education programs and institutional research.

He received his Ph.D. in Nuclear Science and Engineering at Cornell University in 1998. He was the only African-American male in the United States to receive a Ph.D. in his field of study that year. He graduated from Southern University in 1991 with a B.S. in Physics and a minor in Mathematics. In 2000, Jarvis received the Most Distinguished Dissertation Award from the National Society of Black Physicists at Stanford University.

Previously, Jarvis worked part-time as an Assistant Professor of Engineering at Foothill Community College in addition to his full-time job as an engineer.  He also worked in Silicon Valley in the semiconductor industry as a Quality & Reliability Engineer at Hewlett-Packard (HP) and Agilent Technologies in wireless communications. He left corporate America in 2003 to dedicate his time and talent to XCEL Educational Services, a tutorial company he co-founded in 2000.

Jarvis is originally from Baton Rouge, Louisiana and is a strong advocate for education and has served as a motivational and keynote speaker for several organizations in California, Louisiana and New York,” according to LPFI

Sources familiar with the situation, speaking on condition of annonimity, expressed grave concern over this latest development, which came on the heels of an abrupt departure by another Caucasian employee of Kapors — Ross Fubini.

  • Yet Another Unlicensed Contractor Debacle 2017/07/10
    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them. But they dragged out […]

  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]

    Welcome to 2017! Yeah, we know, a bit of time has passed since we’ve been hyperactive here.

We will be continuing those projects and check in here as not to neglect […]

  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]
