The L.A. teacher strike may be over, but observers warn there’s no ‘clear path forward’ for how LAUSD can afford its new contract

By Taylor Swaak | LA School Report The L.A. Unified school board has approved a contract with its teachers union that officials admit they can’t fully afford, calling the deal’s sustainability into question as the district receives repeated warnings from the county that it’s in severe financial straits. To shoulder about $840 million in added costs through 2021, district officials say they’re largely relying on more state funding and a 2020 California tax referendum — neither of which are guaran...

Sears Sold 75,000 DIY Mail Order Homes Between 1908 and 1939, and Transformed American Life

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...

USC to see deeper 3-point line, other experimental rule changes in NIT

That is because NIT games this month will feature a variety of new experimental rules as part of an effort by the NCAA to increase the pace of games. The changes include games divided into four 10-minute quarters instead of 20-minute halves, a free-throw lane widened from 12 feet to 16 feet to match the NBA and an extended 3-point arc to roughly 22 feet to mirror the same distance used by FIBA in inter...

USC can help NCAA Tournament résumé with victory at Utah

It has not been considered a stellar season for the Pac-12. Most metrics and college basketball analysts have ranked the conference toward the bottom of the five so-called Power 5 Conferences, and its perceived strength, coupled with unbalanced scheduling, has hurt USC’s chances of reaching the NCAA Tournament for a third consecutive season – it currently sits on the bubble while in second place in the conference standings. Since beginning their conference schedule in late December, the Trojans ...
