United Teachers of Los Angeles (UTLA) is planning a major show of force at the meeting and afterwards, calling for reductions in class size (and rehiring of laid-off teachers) .
According to the UTLA website, the School Board should rehire teachers due to the passage of Proposition 30 last year.
Meantime, there are other hot-button issues that may be discussed, including the Deasy budget items (including classroom breakfast), teacher dismissals, and the new teacher evaluation program. The Board agenda for the May 14 meeting includes numerous decisions, approvals, and member resolutions. (See 05-14-13 Board Order Of Business).
