FROM THIS EPISODE

Most LA Teachers walked out for an hour on Friday, and Sacramento says their protest was heard. But that may not stop the school board from making budget cuts as soon as tomorrow based on Governor Schwarzenegger’s proposed spending plan. Sports, the visual arts, music and magnet programs all are at risk.

Main Topic L.A. School Board Readies for Budget Battle

California faces a deficit upwards of 15 billion dollars. Governor Schwarzenegger’s proposed budget would increase education spending by 193 million—but that won’t pay cost of living increases and some special funding is being reduced.  For the LA Unified School District, that means a 353 million dollar shortfall.

Guests:
David L. Brewer, III, Superintendent, LA Unified School District
Beth Barrett, Contributor, LA Weekly
Tamar Galatzan, LAUSD Board of Education
A.J. Duffy, Apple Academy Charter Public Schools
