LA Story

At a small dinner in LA last night with some key eduplayers in the city a couple of things were clear: First, nobody seems to have a clear sense of what happens with the Governator’s referendums today. Lots of contrary predictions and speculation. One teacher said she was strongly supporting the tenure one though it just wasn’t something you could talk about in school…so generalize wildly and irresponsibly from that anecdote…

Also, Steve Barr will ultimately win this fight he’s picked with LAUSD and the LA teachers’ union over Jefferson High School and it’s a profound one because it could lead to not only better quality education but genuine new unionism over time. But, in the meantime standby for a lot of angst.
