We now have a remembrance of Los Angeles Unified school board member Marguerite LaMotte.

She died unexpectedly yesterday while attending a conference in San Diego. Information on funeral services for the board's longest-serving member is still to come. From KPCC's Education Desk, Adolfo Guzman-Lopez has more on her legacy.
