LAUSD's Much Reduced Summer School Program

Hosted by

LA Unified used to offer summer school at more than 100 high schools. Now it's down to 16. The recession and other priorities cut the budget from $42 million to $1 million. For the second year in a row, summer school's only available for students who failed a class, presuming that class is even available. Alvaro Cortes is Executive Director of Beyond the Bell, which operates the summer school program.
