LA Unified Superintendent John Deasy and two board members spent a few days in Washington, where they met with officials and lawmakers about the impact of federal budget cuts on the district.
Deasy and members Monica Ratliff and Steve Zimmer met with Rep. George Miller, a Democrat from Concord, Assistant Education Secretary Deb Delisle and Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers, according to the LA Daily News.
The News quoted Ratliff as saying, “What I just realized is how Dr. Deasy has worked to cultivate relationships here in Washington that allows us to talk about what needs to be done for our district.”
