LAUSD Parcel Tax

Voters in Los Angeles in June will be asked to approve a temporary $100-per-parcel annual tax to help fund city schools. Even though it won’t be enough to fend off bigger class sizes or save teachers heading towards layoffs, it would be enough to hopefully fend off some cutbacks for the upcoming school year. Patt talks to the Superintendent about the new tax and what is actually needed to get the LAUSD School’s budget a passing grade.

Guests:

Ramon Cortines, Superintendent of LAUSD

Tamar Galatzan, LAUSD school board member – district 3
