The Politics of Education

Hosted by

Assemblyman Mervyn Dymally has dropped his bill to give LA's elected school-board members a pay raise of 600%, but Measure L on next month's ballot would create a commission to review their salaries, which are currently $24,000 a year. It would also limit members to three four-year terms and limit campaign contributions to $1000 each. In addition, four seats on the board are up for grabs.  We get the lowdown from insiders, including former board member, now councilman, José Huizar, who helped put the measure on the ballot.
