Support LA School Report's year-end campaign. All donations will be matched dollar for dollar.
Kate Anderson tells LA School Report that she plans on filing paperwork today to run for LAUSD school board, in District 4, where she will take on sitting board member Steve Zimmer.
Anderson currently serves as the Los Angeles director of Children Now and sits on the board of the Mar Vista Community Council. She had told us previously she was thinking about running, and is considered an early favorite to gain the endorsement of many in the education reform community. Anderson ran for State Assembly in 2010, where she was defeated in the Democratic primary by Betsy Butler.
A few other candidates filed their paperwork yesterday with the City Clerk’s office: in District 2, Scott Folsom, who writes the blog 4 LA Kids; in District 4, Jeneen Robinson; and in District 6, Juanita Arevalo.
