  • After-School Kabbalah Comes to LAUSD Campuses

    By Rachel Heller

    April 2, 2009 | 10:59 am

    Along with homework time, crafts and supervised games, grade school students in several Los Angeles Unified School District elementary schools this spring are getting something different at their after-school programs: spiritual awareness.

    Dozens of San Fernando Valley children are...

  • Q&A with Howard Blume: What’s next for LAUSD with Brewer gone?

    By Julie G Fax

    December 18, 2008 | 2:01 am

    Last week the Los Angeles Unified School District board voted to spend more than $500,000 to buy out the two remaining years on the contract of Superintendent David L. Brewer III, a retired Navy vice admiral who took over the struggling district two years ago. Brewer's supporters...

    Two L.A. School Board Members to Retire

    Veteran Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) board members Julie Korenstein and Marlene Canter, both of whom are Jewish, announced in late October that they would not seek re-election for their terms, which expire in June.

    Korenstein has...

  • City Voice: Keep education in the spotlight

    By Bill Boyarsky

    February 28, 2008 | 5:00 pm

    After visiting a Los Angeles public charter high school where mostly poor and working-class young people receive an education, I went home and turned on the Democratic presidential debate and saw that the subject of public schools was hardly mentioned.

    I wasn't surprised. Although...

  • LAUSD president gets lesson in partnership

    By Charlotte Hildebrand

    May 24, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    When Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa held a news conference on Friday, May 18, to announce his decision to end a yearlong legal battle to take control of Los Angeles schools, Board of Education President Marlene Canter was standing by his side.

    The show of unity -- Canter and...
  • Don’t Let Affirmative Action Fade

    By Charlotte Hildebrand

    August 17, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Louisville, Ky., is a city divided between white and black, rich and poor; between the West End of town, where blacks live in camelback shotgun shacks and the East End, with its leafy neighborhoods of white gentility.

    But after decades of court-ordered school integration,...

    Truth on Schools

    Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's education deputy missed on all facts about LAUSD ("Competing Moments of Truth on Schools," April 14). His description of LAUSD's teachers, accountability and student performance bases itself on inaccuracies, myths and full-fledged...

  • Parent Wins School Pesticide Battle

    By Idan Ivri

    February 9, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    A new law that bans that use of experimental pesticides in schools is the latest achievement of Robina Suwol, a Jewish anti-pesticide activist.

    The law, which took effect last month, grew out of a presentation two years ago before an L.A. Unified School District (LAUSD) advisory...

    Heartless Rav

    I support Rabbi David Wolpe's position entirely ("We Must Condemn Heartless Bilge," Sept. 16). Rav Ovadiah Yosef has made Israel look very bad. Why would a scholar of Israel speak such racism, a man of our ancient traditions who should have more respect for human...

    Israel School Teaches Peace Lesson

    Racially motivated brawls at Jefferson High School this spring made the school appear, at times, like a miniwar zone. Which makes it especially interesting that L.A. Unified School District (LAUSD) officials are learning lessons from Israeli and...

  • Battling Board Backs Bond

    By Howard Blume

    August 4, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    What a difference a day makes.

    In 24 little hours, the L.A. school board journeyed last week from chaos to harmony; from nothing to a November ballot measure; from no new taxes to a bond measure that will ask voters to raise their property taxes for schools "one last time."

    If...

  • Conflicting Schools of Thought

    By Howard Blume

    March 3, 2005 | 7:00 pm

     

    You don't have to go far to hear complaints about the L.A. Unified School District (LAUSD), the city's beleaguered public school system, nor very far to catch grumbling about Mayor James K. Hahn. But linking the two is a stretch for many, because Los Angeles' mayor has no...

  • Shalom Leases

    By Wendy J. Madnick

    January 17, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    An announcement last week by the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) that it will not renew leases for its West San Fernando Valley properties will have an impact on two Jewish institutions: Kadima Hebrew Academy and the Rabbi Max D. Raiskin West Valley Hebrew Academy.

  • ADL Passover seder for the schools in Los Angeles Unified School District

    November 4, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    All evening Taumisha Freeman sat dutifully, listening to the story of the Exodus out of Egypt, tasting matzah ("It needs salt"), reciting the plagues, without any expression. It was hard to know if she was bored or if, given the fact that she had never been around anything Jewish...
  • Assessing LAUSD

    By Marlene Adler Marks

    November 4, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    The crisis in the Los Angeles Unified School District, now in its third week, has required of the organized Jewish community all the self-control it can muster. To be straight about it, the board's reform coalition, that came to power with a strong Jewish vote, botched the handling...
  • Completing the Revolution

    By Marlene Adler Marks

    June 3, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    When last we en-countered the Los Angeles Unified School District, it was in the midst of a revolution. The April 9 primary election swept out two incumbents and replaced them with reformers, Caprice Young and Mike Lansing. With the re-election of board member David Tokofsky, it was...
