Melvoin v. Zimmer for LA School Board District 4

Hosted by

A school board race in West LA is on track to be the most expensive school board race in the nation. More than $5 million has been poured into the contest. Most of it is outside money. Some of it comes from big-name donors like Eli Broad. This race has become a stand-in for the charter versus traditional school debate. The two candidates join Press Play for a debate.
