LAUSD Charter Schools Get Windfall

Eli Broad announced today that his Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation is donating $10 million to open 13 new charter schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District. The money is going to the Alliance for College-Ready Public Schools, a nonprofit charter management organization that already runs seven charter schools in the district. Broad joins Patt to talk about his donation, education and the growing charter school movement.
