LA Teachers Protest Stalled Contract Talks

Hosted by

Several thousand Los Angeles teachers turned out last night to point flashlights on LA Unified offices downtown and in the San Fernando Valley. Their contract ran out in July and, five months later, they claimed they were pushing for higher salaries and shining the light on continuing waste by the LAUSD. They're exerting pressure on candidates for the March school board election by withholding endorsements.  We look at the politics of education and what goes on in the classroom.
