LAUSD teachers went on strike in 1989. But are the stakes higher in 2019?

Whether they were stuck in an auditorium or playing long-term hooky, many a school kid old enough to remember the 1989 Los Angeles teachers strike recalls the period as nine days of good old-fashioned lawlessness. Quoted in a New York Times article at the time, LAPD Lieut. Frank Valdez expressed his concern about “little predators” roaming LA’s downtown streets. “The problem kids are not going to go to school and it’s going to create problems all over, not just on campus,” he said during the str...

School district culture largely to blame for not uprooting teacher sexual misconduct on Southern California campuses, experts say

Every day, Terri Miller receives a spate of Google alerts on her iPhone informing her that, somewhere in the U.S., a teacher or other school employee has been accused of sexually abusing one or more students. “They come in sometimes by the hundreds daily. We’ve been seeing increases yearly since 2014,” said Miller, executive director of Stop Educator Sexual Abuse, Misconduct and Exploitation (S.E.S.A.M.E.), a Las Vegas-based nonprofit that works to prevent sexual exploitation, abuse and harassme...

California’s persistent teacher shortage fueled by attrition, high demand, say newly released studies

By Diana Lambert, EdSource California has earmarked nearly $200 million over the last four years to address the state’s persistent teacher shortage, but it is not enough, according to new studies that are part of “Getting Down to Facts II,” a research project focused on a wide array of statewide education issues. The teacher shortage has worsened in recent years as state funding for education improved and districts began lowering class sizes and bringing back programs like summer school and the ...

Both sides lobbying California governor on bill to delay school start time for teens

By Theresa Harrington, EdSource California teens may get to sleep a bit later before heading to school, if the governor signs a bill requiring middle and high schools to start no earlier than 8:30 a.m. But not everyone agrees that allowing the legislature to dictate the starting times of local schools is good policy. Middle and high school students in California start their school day on average at 8:07 a.m. according to a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a time that rese...

Don’t like your kid’s school district? Transferring could become easier—if they’re being bullied

After overcoming homelessness, Keshara Shaw has been determined to improve circumstances for her family. She got a job and a place to live. But she’s having a harder time getting her 8-year-old son into a good school. Shaw doesn’t like the school he was assigned to in their Los Angeles neighborhood because students aren’t performing well and the surrounding streets are riddled with violence. Instead, she wants him to go to a different school where she thinks he’ll be safer and get a better educa...

Education emerging as key issue in governor’s race while Villaraigosa and Cox battle behind front-runner Newsom

By David Cantor | The 74 In February 2015, barely three months after he was elected to a second term as California’s lieutenant governor, Gavin Newsom announced he would run for governor in 2018. The one-time mayor of San Francisco, where his dash and early support of gay marriage made him a high-profile hero on the left, raised millions for his campaign long before another candidate entered the race. He has never trailed, and will likely remain the front-runner heading into next month’s “jungle...

Despite progress, California’s teaching force far from reflecting diversity of students

By LOUIS FREEDBERG, EdSource California has a far more racially and ethnically diverse teaching force than it had 20 years ago — and a more diverse one than is the case nationally. About about 1 in 3 of the state’s 305,000 teachers are teachers of color, compared to 1 in 5 teachers across the nation. But during the same period, California’s public school student population has also become more diverse. As a result, the diversity gap between teachers and students has barely narrowed, and in some ...

Big money from charter backers has potential to reshape governor’s race

By Louis Freedberg, EdSource It is crunch time for advocates of charter schools who want to see continued growth of enrollments in California’s charter schools and also want to elect a governor who they view as being most sympathetic to their cause. In this case, the candidate they are backing is former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa who has been at war with California’s teachers unions for years, despite having worked for the United Teachers of Los Angeles for many years earlier in his ...

This Arcadia assistant principal is at the center of the lawsuit that could change how teachers unions operate

Bhavini Bhakta never thought she was going to fight her union. She was happy with the benefits she received and with the ability to vote on her calendar or contract. But on Wednesday, she’ll square off in court with the California Teachers Association. Bhakta and two other teachers sued the statewide organization in 2015, challenging the practice of sending a portion of teachers’ local union dues to headquarters in Sacramento, where it is often spent on political causes without members’ input. T...

Faced with fierce opposition, focus of state-run STEM school shifts

By John Fesnterwald, EdSource The drive to set up a state-run school with a science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) curriculum has made it past another legislative hurdle, though the proposed school continues to face significant resistance. Last Friday, the Senate Appropriations Committee endorsed a revised version of Assembly Bill 1217, adding some amendments intended to mollify union and school district critics but including others that could intensify the opposition. Among the former...
