LA Teachers and School District At Impasse

Hosted by

Later today, some teachers in the Los Angeles Unified School District plan to boycott faculty meetings and rally at schools across the district. They’re pushing for salary increases and smaller class sizes, among other things. Meanwhile, LAUSD superintendent Ramon Cortines has warned that boycotting faculty meetings violates state law. And he’ll dock teachers’ pay if they go through with it. We hear from both sides.
