FROM Tom McTague
Who is Boris Johnson? Boris Johnson, former two-term mayor of London, known for his mop of blonde hair and flamboyant style, has been the face of the Brexit campaign. Now that British Prime Minister David Cameron is stepping down, Johnson is the front-runner to replace him. What do we know about Boris Johnson? Are there comparisons to be made between him and our own outspoken, unusually coiffed candidate: Donald Trump?
Who is winning the fight to control LA’s public schools? Twenty-two people were killed by a suicide bomber last night at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England. Who was the terrorist and what does the attack mean for Manchester’s immigrant community? Also, we talk to newly elected LAUSD school board member Kelly Gonez and Alex Caputo-Pearl, head of the LA teachers union, about the most expensive school board race in the country’s history, the conflict between the union and charter school supporters, and the future of LA’s public schools.
