State may create and run a STEM school in LA County

Public schools in California are usually run by local school districts, but the state's board of education runs three schools designed for blind and deaf students.

Now it wants to add one more in LA County.

It would be a school that stresses the STEM subjects – science, technology, engineering and math.

But local schools already have extensive STEM programs; they are offered at about 100 different LAUSD schools.

EdSource reporter John Fensterwald writes about the story and joins Take Two to explain why the state is getting into this.
