FROM THIS EPISODE

Overcrowded schools without textbooks or bathrooms, terrible test scores, ethnic politics and a move to break up the Unified School District: just a few of the challenges facing LA's new superintendent. But at 71 years of age, former Colorado Governor Roy Romer campaigned hard for what he calls "one of the toughest jobs a guy could find" because, he says, "it can be one of the most rewarding." In a world full of tough audiences, Romer already is getting mixed reviews. Raves from business interests and teachers; disappointment from some other interest groups; a scathing editorial in the LA Times. You'll hear Romer's reply and the consensus from L.A.'s various communities and from Colorado.
