The LA Times weighed in today with its endorsements for the LA Unified school board, backing two of three incumbents in the March 3 elections but both with language that suggests moderate misgivings.

The editorial board recommends Tamar Galatzan for board District 3 although the support “comes with misgivings.” Board president Richard Vladovic gets the endorsement for District 7 with the admonition that “he has not been the leader we had hoped for.”

In District 5, the editorial board bypassed the incumbent, Bennett Kayser, calling him “easily the weakest of the three contenders.” Instead, the paper picked Andrew Thomas for his “expertise in such areas as school software programs and program effectiveness.”

The editorial is available here.
