Featured News Statement on Devastating Cuts to Magnet Schools in LA Unified
The state now threatens the coup de grace, which is to eliminate entirely magnet bus transportation, and with it the possibility for students who can’t provide their own transportation to attend magnet schools. Cutting bus transportation will substantially eliminate the diversity in the magnet schools and the magnets will become more segregated over time. We need to make sure that students from all parts of the city have the right to participate in this important alternative, which is one of the only real paths to college, particularly for disadvantaged students, that’s left in the City of Los Angeles. We think of this as a very important civil rights issue and believe that Superintendent Deasy is correct in suing the state government over this issue.
