In a new KNX 1070 NEWSRADIOinterview, Board member-elect Monica Ratliff expresses some of her own ideas about what should get funded and expanded in LAUSD in upcoming years, including vocational education:

“One of the areas to which Ratliff plans to bring renewed focus is vocational education, which involves training students for technical occupations and preparing them to enter the workplace with viable skill sets. Ratliff said voters in her district are voicing concerns about cuts to vocational education.”

Ratliff also discusses teacher professional development, teacher dismissal, and hiring more assistant principals for LAUSD schools.  You can listen to the entire piece here: LA Teacher Looks To Revive Vocational Training In Schools
