As the LAUSD strike dust settles, questions linger about truancy issues

The teachers strike that shook the Los Angeles Unified School District may be over, but some parents said they’re still confused about issues that emerged over student absences during a tumultuous nine days. As the walkout that began on Jan. 14 dragged on into the week, district attendance dwindled. Despite an army of substitute teachers and campuses being open for business, a vast school system with half a million students saw its attendance plummet to, at its lowest point, 84,160, as parents p...

8 questions parents have about today’s LAUSD teachers strike

How long will the strike last? That’s the question parents, among others, are asking as a Los Angeles Unified teachers strike gets underway Monday. At this point, it’s anybody’s guess.

But there are certainly challenges: L.A. Unified is massive, comprising more than 60,000 employees and 1,000 schools acro...

A former LA Daily News security guard had an ‘attititude that shined’

“I’m not sure if anyone at the paper remembers my grandfather, Alfonso Rodriguez, or knew him while he was there. He passed away last week at the age of 80.” – Chris McGuiness Oh, we remember him, Chris. You don’t forget a man like your grandfather. His job title was security guard, but he’d joke that he was really a glorified receptionist. It was just like Al to downplay how important he was to all of us here. In so many ways, he became our grandfather, too. I used to kid and call him Father Ro...
