The bulk of the meeting will focus on the launch of a new education coalition, Communities for Los Angeles Student Success (CLASS), a collaborative of major civil rights, education and advocacy organizations you may recall having read about here before.
United Way and CLASS will also present its findings from an April survey, which questioned over 100 community groups about increased education funding, local control of schools and teacher evaluations that include test scores.
“Our goal is to get a response from the education community what priorities should be for LA moving forward,” said Elmer Roldan of United Way. “We also want to discuss the city’s direction now with new leadership on its school board and in city hall.”
