L.A. School Report Takeover

Hosted by

The pro-charter organization The Seventy Four has taken over the education site L.A. School Report, which covers schools in Los Angeles. The Seventy Four was co-founded by former CNN anchor Campbell Brown. It’s mainly funded by pro-charter supporters. Brown is also embroiled in a lawsuit aimed at overturning tenure protections for New York City public school  teachers. That’s why the takeover worries teachers and other union leaders. They think The Seventy Four’s control will lead to less transparency and could undermine the journalistic integrity at the L.A. School Report.
