LAUSD Superintendent Michelle King on public schools

Hosted by

It’s not even September yet, but LA’s 650,000 public school students have already been back at their desks for two weeks. Statewide test results recently showed those students improving but still below the state average. Thirty-nine percent meet English language standards. And only 29 percent meet math standards. Black and Latino kids are doing even worse. Meanwhile, more students are enrolling in charter schools, which means less money for LAUSD. What’s the outlook for LA’s public schools?
