FROM THIS EPISODE

LAUSD closed all of its campuses and facilities this week because of an emailed terror threat which claimed bombs, nerve gas and automatic weapons were stashed at several schools, and an attack – the threat said – was imminent.

Public school officials in New York City received a similar threat, but quickly deemed it a hoax. New York City Police Commissioner Bill Bratton – who used to head up the LAPD – said the city of L.A. overreacted. And that put a lot of local leaders, like school board president Steve Zimmer, on the defensive.

KCRW's Steve Chiotakis is joined by Howard Blume, who covers education for the Los Angeles Times, and Richard Perez-Pena of the New York Times.
