LAUSD Teacher Walk-Out

LAUSD teachers protested proposed state budget cuts for education by holding a one-hour walk-out this morning at the beginning of the school day. Preliminary reports indicate that tens of thousands of teachers and thousands of parents walked the picket lines. L.A. Unified planned to have administrators and staff watch the students while the teachers were outside of their classrooms. Larry gets an update from KPCC reporters Brian Watt and Adolfo Guzman-Lopez who spent the morning at various schools in the district. Other guests include A.J. Duffy, President of United Teachers Los Angeles (UTLA), and David Holmquist, the Chief Operating Officer of the LAUSD.
