LAUSD Superintendent John Deasy and UTLA President Warren Fletcher both sat down separately with KPCC’s “Take Two” radio program to discuss their post-election reactions and visions for the future of LA schools. Listen to the Deasy interview here and the Fletcher interview here.
Highlights from Deasy’s interview include his reaction to Steve Zimmer’s win over Kate Anderson in District 4 (Westside/Hollywood), whether or not he thinks the outside spending in the election was fair, and what LAUSD teachers have told him about his push to include test scores in teacher evaluations.
