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.

San Bernardino will pay $390k to settle suit against cop who arrested 7th graders "to prove a point"

In 2013, San Bernardino Sheriff’s Deputy Luis Ortiz took the decision to arrest a group of seventh grade girls -- 12 and 13 year olds -- because they wouldn't speak when he demanded to know who among them had been the aggressors and who had been the victims in a series of bullying incidents; Ortiz's rationale for these arrests was that the girls were "unresponsive and disrespectful" and that by arresting them, he could "prove a point," that he wasn't "playing around" and this would "make [them]...

Middle school cop who arrested seventh graders "to prove a point" may yet face consequences

In 2013, Deputy Luis Ortiz was the "school resource officer" at Etiwanda Intermediate in San Bernadino County, California, when he arrested a group of 12- and 13-year-old girls, cuffing them and taking them to jail in a police vehicle; at the time and afterward, Ortiz said he arrested them "to prove a point" because he felt they were "unresponsive and disrespectful" and in his belief, introducing them to the criminal justice system would make them "mature a lot faster."

Stream the “Complete” John Coltrane Playlist: A 94-Hour Journey Through 700+ Transformative Tracks

Recorded in the year of his death, Interstellar Space—a frenetic suite of free jazz duets with drummer R...
