LA's schools are segregated. Can LAUSD do anything about it?

The research is clear: children of all races learn better in integrated schools. Yet in more than half of the public schools in L.A., the student body is at least 90 percent black or Latino. Segregation is a problem Austin Beutner inherits as the new superintendent of the L.A. Unified School District. But is there anything he can do to solve it? Or at least mitigate it?
