LAUSD BOARD CANDIDATES: PLATITUDES WITHOUT A PLAN

LAUSDLogo.gif
(Mensaje se repite en EspaƱol) On March 7, 2017 we will have a primary election for 3 of the 7 seats on the LAUSD Board that will be followed up on May 16th by a run-off in the general election, if no one candidate has gotten a majority in the primary. In going over the candidates statements- be they incumbents or new candidates- one cannot help but be struck by the fact that none of these candidates have put forth any detailed and substantive platforms to address the endemic problems of an LAUSD that has been failing for a long time and is clearly on the verge of both financial and academic bankruptcy.
