Several school board members and LAUSD Superintendent Austin Beutner spoke to the council before the 13-0 vote in sup...

LAUSD board race: Heather Repenning leaps over Graciela Ortiz to possibly face Jackie Goldberg in May runoff

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. But despite the urgency of improving educational outcomes for students living in the southeast communities, most likely...

LAUSD’s Spanish-speaking parents engage candidates in forum ahead of school board special election

With the stakes high for whoever might take over the Los Angeles Unified School District Board’s District 5 seat in March, nine candidates for the seat faced parents Wednesday night in a forum that gave them a chance to weigh in on issues parents care about. For some parents, the event left a little more to be desired for lack of attention to issues like charters schools in the wake of a massive teacher strike underpinned by the issue. What did get attention was how school board hopefuls plan to...
