Meanwhile, there's a new initiative aimed at promoting a college-going culture in East Los Angeles. "GO East LA: A Pathway for College and Career Success" will make it easier for Garfield High School students to gain admission to local colleges. 

The initiative was developed by the presidents at Cal State LA and East LA College along with L.A. Board of Education member Monica Garcia. She joins Take Two to discuss.
