Is California’s Department of Education Leaving 20,000 Children Behind?

Hosted by

English is a new language for 1.5 million California school children, but at least 20,000 are not getting any of the services required by federal law and the State Constitution. That’s from the state’s own records, according to a lawsuit being heard this week in Los Angeles. We’ll hear what’s at stake for kids, teachers and school districts failing to make the grade.

Also, a look back at Pacific Ocean Park, the amusement venue on the beach between Venice and Santa Monica. How did it bridge the gap between Frank Sinatra and Janice Joplin between the 1950’s and late 60’s?
