FROM THIS EPISODE

Governor Jerry Brown is so confident in his re-election that he’s running ads that don’t even mention his campaign or his opponent, Republican Neel Kashkari. He’s down in the polls and in dollars. We’ll ask the GOP candidate why he’s running and whether his party has a future in California.

Also, some high school students in LA Unified have been missing out on the classes they need to graduate -- we’ll hear about classroom chaos at Jefferson High and what’s being done to fix it.

State Ordered to Intervene at Jefferson High 8 MIN, 9 SEC

Here in Los Angeles school started nearly two months ago, but some students at LA Unified’s Jefferson High School still aren’t assigned to classes that they need to graduate. A computer scheduling snafu assigned these kids to to overbooked classrooms or placed them in the same courses they’ve taken and passed. Yesterday a superior court judge issued a temporary restraining order to require the state to address the problem; it was part of a class action lawsuit involving underperforming schools in California.

Kathryn Eidmann is Staff Attorney at Public Counsel, the pro bono law firm working on the case.

Can the GOP Underdog Nominee for Governor Change the Party? 13 MIN, 33 SEC

With less than 4 weeks to go before the November election, Gov. Jerry Brown holds a commanding lead over Republican opponent Neel Kashkari. Before running, Kashkari served in the Treasury Department during the George W. Bush administration, where he helped oversee the Troubled Asset Relief Program (or TARP) – the $700 Billion bank bailout. Before that he worked at Goldman Sachs. Recently Kashkari sat down with Warren Olney to talk about the final weeks of the campaign, and what’s next for the GOP in California.
