OPINION.POLL_An independent Financial Review Panel recently dropped some sobering news: LAUSD is headed toward a financial cliff and, without changes in operation, faces a $600 million budget shortfall by 2019.

The reasons for the dark financial clouds ahead are varied, but one often cited is declining enrollment. The district has lost 100,000 students in recent years due to such factors as a declining birth rate in the county and a rise in charter schools.

So . . . If you could make one major change in LA Unified to reverse years of enrollment decline and start attracting more parents and students to the district, which would it be?

Tell us in our poll, which will remain open though the Thanksgiving weekend.
