Tomorrow at 2:00 is the scheduled date and time for the much-discussed education debate between Mayoral candidates Eric Garcetti and Wendy Greuel, which is being hosted by KCRW at the Petersen Automotive Museum.
The two candidates have mirrored each other on education issues in recent conversations, and earlier today both visited the parents behind the 24th Street Elementary School “trigger” that led to an overhaul of the school.
There are a few things we still don’t know about the candidates’ education positions, including for example where they stand on the controversial No Child Left Behind “waiver” that LAUSD is applying for from Washington, whether they support the teacher dismissal bill going through the state legislature, and — perhaps most important — which candidate they support for the District 6 School Board runoff.
