Main Topic Summertime Blues: LA Kids Locked Out of LA School Pools

Last week, Evan George wrote a lengthy story in the Downtown News about the Miguel Contreras Learning Complex. It was opened nine months ago with city officials joining the school district to applaud an additional benefit: state-of-the-art facilities for an entire community with scarce recreational resources for a large population of young people. Despite that promise and with summer temperatures rising, the Olympic-sized swimming pool has been closed to the public.
