L.A. to Give Teachers Chance to Manage Schools
The Los Angeles Unified School District approved a plan this week that will turn over management of 30 schools to groups primarily comprised of nonprofits and teachers. This is seen as a blow to charter organizers, who were hoping to get a significant slice of the pie.
The school board voted in August to approve this school choice plan for new and existing schools, with Lesli told you about in this space. The local teacher's union later sued the school district over the plan.
Check out more details on what this means on my colleague Steve Sawchuk's blog, Teacher Beat.
