Superintendent Austin Beutner emphasizes kid-centric vision for LAUSD

On Tuesday, Austin Beutner was named LAUSD’s new superintendent. He’s held high-profile jobs at City Hall and the LA Times. He did very well in private equity before that. But he does not have deep experience in education. We talk to him about being an unconventional choice, his vision, possible plans for charter schools, and the district’s financial troubles.
