Teachers Reform Group Backs Underdog for Union's Top Spot

Hosted by

A.J. Duffy is termed out as president of the United Teachers of Los Angeles, whose members work at LA Unified District schools. The union establishment's candidate to replace him is Vice President Julie Washington, but she's been forced into a runoff by Warren Fletcher, who has now been endorsed by a group of frustrated union members calling itself NewTLA, a play on the acronym UTLA. Howard Blume covers education for the LA Times.
