Los Angeles, CA – With the recent wins by the United Teachers of Los Angeles came about with some commitments by the LAUSD to address prevailing issues at the 1,000 schools which consist of over 600,000 children. At the forefront of these issues are charter schools, class sizes, among other pertinent issues.
The next LAUSD Board Member will be facing these challenges head on and the race has just moved forward to a runoff election in the 5th District. The race has narrowed down to two candidates: former LAUSD Board Member and UTLA favorite Jackie Goldberg and Heather Repenning who was the former Field and District Director for Councilmember Eric Garcetti.
With so much at stake, this critical vote in the LAUSD could determine the educational opportunities afforded to the predominantly Latino children who reside in LAUSD’s 5th District. The runoff election is scheduled for Tuesday, May 14, 2019.
