LAUSD Issues Report Cards on Schools

Hosted by

"I want both the bad and good, and I don't want it sugarcoated." That's what the new superintendent Ray Cortines told the LA Times about the one-page report cards LA Unified is sending out today. The idea is to tell parents how well or how badly their children's schools are doing.  This change from past practice comes at a time when school districts face massive cuts because Sacramento can't get its financial act together.
