Our community still needs plumbers, mechanics and construction workers. The LAUSD should should reinstate career and technical training and trade classes, including wood-shop, machine-shop, graphic design and construction-related classes.
A new school year is set to begin in LAUSD, with all the typical fresh hopes and dreams, but this one will be different. For the first time since the 1980s, no LAUSD student will be attending a school on the calendar known as Concept 6.
City Year is not about a magic potion to cure all of our students' problems in a night. Instead it is about showing up everyday to the schools, believing in our students and working tirelessly to help them succeed.
