LA School Report | October 31, 2016
Editorial: Is the Los Angeles Unified School District overpromising again?

Unquestionably, it will be a happy day when L.A. Unified gets close to a 100% graduation rate, and the board is right to demand a hyper-focus on moving in that direction. But goals must be specific, well-planned and achievable, or they can end up causing more problems than they solve. By The Los Angeles Times Editorial Board
