Rafe Esquith has been called "the most famous teacher in the world." Why has LA Unified pulled him out of the classroom? Esquith says he made a joke that was misunderstood, but the District will only say there are "more serious issues."

Also, the LA City Council has passed a crackdown on street encampments that opponents call criminalizing the homeless. We ask Councilman Gil Cedillo why he cast the only dissenting vote.
