The vent was organized by United Way of Greater Los Angeles, LA Youth Vote and Cal State L.A.’s Pat Brown Institute of Public Affairs. The community forum provided a voice for students who are often left out of key decisions. Students moderated the session and developed the questions and format for the event.
This LAUSD race is important because the district’s seven-member board oversees an $8.4 billion annual budget for more than half a million students in 785 schools. The LAUSD candidate forums and recently launched Parent Engagement Toolkit are part of a series of efforts over the course of 15 years that have sought to support students so that they can become college and career ready. These efforts also offer opportunities to engage the broader public and key stakeholder communities in the education of children.
