Can Green Dot Save LA-s Schools?

Hosted by
Green Dot is a private charter school company that wants to take over LA-s racially troubled Jefferson High, where just one percent of 3800 kids passed recent national math tests. But LA Unified has its own plans for Jefferson and the teachers- union is outright opposed. Can Green Dot do what LA Unified can-t? We hear from the man who runs Green Dot and his establishment critics, along with former Mayor Richard Riordan.
