A big LAUSD special election is on Tuesday. But Latino turnout will likely be small

By Esmeralda Fabián Romero | LA School Report Next week’s special election for the vacant school board seat is expected to draw “minuscule” voter turnout, and experts predict Latino participation will be even lower, particularly in the board district’s poorer southeast section, where Latinos make up almost the entire enrollment and where the most struggling schools are located.

What did get attention was how school board hopefuls plan to...

Gilmour got to work in 1986 on developing new solo material into the 13th Pink Floyd studio album, the first withou...
