The Politics of Education in South LA

Hosted by

Teacher evaluations, pay raises, charter schools and a controversial superintendent will all be affected by next Tuesday’s special election to a vacancy on the LA Unified School Board.  A young, self-styled reformer is challenging a veteran of 50 years of teaching and administration.  The stakes are high, but critics say the reformer has taken a low road in the run-off campaign.  We’ll hear from both candidates.        

Also, it’s not so hot, but it’s still humid.  How long will Southern Californians be stuck with somebody else’s weather?
