Welcome to LA School Report
Jamie Alter Lynton | August 16, 2012
Today I am pleased to announce the official launch of LA School Report. My goal is to provide meaningful coverage on issues related to the Los Angeles public schools and to shine a light on a system that receives little attention despite its enormous importance. As the second largest school system in the country and one that commands an annual budget of over $6 billion dollars, the Los Angeles Unified School District faces complicated and controversial challenges that too often receive little scrutiny. LA School Report will provide news coverage, analysis and commentary on these issues and enrich the discourse on issues related to public officials, school policies and ultimately about the future of this city. I encourage you to get informed, be engaged, and to have an impact on education in Los Angeles.
