Villaraigosa and The LA School Board ()
Tamar Galatzan and Richard Vladovic both got big campaign money from Mayor Villaraigosa, and both won seats on the LA Unified School Board in yesterday’s final elections. Villaraigosa has promised commitment to turn around the schools but he won't have the direct control he was originally looking for. We speak with Connie Bruck who profiles Villaraigosa in this week’s New Yorker magazine.
