LAUSD Has a New Superintendent

Hosted by

L.A.’s schools have a new leader today. Michelle King has been named superintendent of the L.A. Unified School District. A consummate insider, she’s worked for the LAUSD for more than 30 years, first as a teacher and a principal, then as deputy superintendent. And as a child she attended public school here in L.A. Now King’s the first black woman ever to run the city’s school system. Who is she and what are her ideas about education?
