LAUSD Votes for Layoffs

Hosted by

The Los Angeles Unified School District is in for continued struggle over last night's decision to lay off more than 5000 people, including 3500 newer teachers, those with too little seniority to have earned job protection. Koreatown's Del Olmo Elementary School will lose almost two-thirds of its teachers, despite a surge in test scores last year.  Roman Cortines is the Superintendent who once warned that he might resign if cuts weren't made.
