The L.A. Unified School District is getting rid of so-called teacher jails. Until now, most district teachers under investigation for breaking misconduct rules, had to show up at district offices, known as teacher jails, during their suspensions. 

Now, the L.A. Unified Superintendent, John Deasy says teachers will be able to stay home during the the investigation.

Howard Blume, an education reporter for the LA Times, joins Take Two to discuss the change.
