Malibu Wants Its Own School District

Hosted by

The Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District is looking to dehyphenate, a split that’s been likened to a divorce. Malibu city leaders think it’s time to have a school district of their own, but in order to get their way, the city may need to pay out some money to its poorer neighbor, Santa Monica. The Malibu representative of the Santa Monica Malibu Unified School District walks us through the tense relationship and negotiations that are taking place.
