FROM THIS EPISODE

Mayor Villaraigosa will get to run some of LA’s most troubled public schools. The new school board is going along, but the roles of parents and teachers’ are not yet clear. How will the “partnership schools” be different from charter schools?  Will state law allow them to get extra resources?  Who will decide if the Mayor’s office is doing a better job than LA Unified’s existing bureaucracy?

Main Topic Mayor (finally) Partners Up with LAUSD

The courts vetoed Mayor Villaraigosa’s bid for direct power over all of LA’s public schools.  But a newly elected school board majority has agreed to what’s called The Partnership for Los Angeles Schools. The Mayor will get to run two low-performing high schools along with the elementary and middle schools that feed them. Partnership schools will plan curriculum, recruit staff and control their own budgets. Governing councils will include principals, teachers, staff members, students and parents.
