Mayor (finally) Partners Up with LAUSD

Hosted by

The courts vetoed Mayor Villaraigosa’s bid for direct power over all of LA’s public schools.  But a newly elected school board majority has agreed to what’s called The Partnership for Los Angeles Schools. The Mayor will get to run two low-performing high schools along with the elementary and middle schools that feed them. Partnership schools will plan curriculum, recruit staff and control their own budgets. Governing councils will include principals, teachers, staff members, students and parents.
