LAUSD's Superintendent Brewer: Should He Stay or Should He Go?

Hosted by

Retired Navy Admiral David L. Brewer became Superintendent of the LA Unified School District just over two years ago. The school board wanted its own manager, partly to head off Mayor Villaraigosa's effort to take control of the District. Recent elections have produced a board majority that's supportive of Villaraigosa, and it's reportedly considering buying out Brewer's contract. The Mayor has no role in the process but, as the Los Angeles Times put it today, "key civic leaders have lost confidence" in Superintendent Brewer. Will he be out of a job?
