LAUSD Slashes 1.6 Billion Dollars over Three Years

Hosted by

Yesterday, the Los Angeles Unified School Board passed a $5.5 billion budget.  That sounds like a lot, but the LAUSD is the nation’s second largest, and the operating budget’s been cut so much that 2200 teachers will have to be laid off, class sizes will increase and in coming years, it’s going to get worse.
