Recommendations for Improving the School Facility Program in Los Angeles Unified School District.
Terzian, Richard R.
The Little Hoover Commission presents its findings on the State of California's school facilities program with a review of the practices of the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD). This report on the LAUSD reveals that children in Los Angeles are currently doomed to overcrowded, uninspired, and unhealthy schools because of persistent incompetence by the LAUSD. It then describes these problems in detail addressing enrollment growth, personnel practices, organizational structure, and board competence. Immediate and long-term reforms of the LAUSD are discussed, followed by reform recommendations that should be initiated by the Governor and Legislature. An appendices presents a list of witnesses before the Little Hoover Commission public hearing. (GR)
