This information is provided by the candidate

Euna Anderson has spent her entire career advocating for children. Married with two sons who attended LAUSD schools, Euna became a substitute teacher in 1994, where her passion for teaching young children was ignited. The following year she became a full-time teacher and quickly rose to Associate Principal at the Logan Early Learning Center in 1996. She received her BA at Southern California College in Organizational Management and her Master's degree at Pepperdine University's Organizational Leadership program. Euna's next challenge was to serve as Principal of the Canoga Early Education Center and the Cleveland Early Education Center. For the past five years, she has been the Principal of both the Early Education Centers of Alexandria and Vine. She is also an Adjunct professor at National University. Euna was a former member of the Black Women's Forum, a professional leadership group whose members include Congresswoman Maxine Waters, who co-founded the organization, and former Congresswoman Diane Watson. Appointed to be the Early Education representative on the AALA executive board, Euna fought for funding for early education and worked to create the best practices for principals of early education institutions in LAUSD. She also changed the culture of early learning by creating coalitions with teachers to deliver the best learning opportunities for children. As a result, she created some of the highest attendance records ever for early education. Dozens of studies have shown that investing in high-quality pre-school learning pays dividends. Students who were in preschool programs are less likely to repeat grades, need special education, or get into trouble with the law, and are more likely to graduate from high school, own homes, and even have longer marriages. The Urban Institute found that over 50% of poor 5-year-olds don't have the math, reading or behavioral skills needed to profitably start kindergarten. If children keep arriving in school with these deficits, no amount of money will be enough to improve their lot later in life. The answer is to focus on early education. The answer is Euna Anderson for School Board.
