Questions & Answers

1. What is the single most important issue facing LAUSD today? As a Board Member, what would you do to deal with it?

LAUSD needs to recruit a serious reformer to lead our district in the coming years as Superintendent. Too often, politics gets in the way of providing real solutions to the challenges facing our kids, and what we get in the end is scandal after scandal. Right now, we have an opportunity to change the way LAUSD works by hiring a superintendent that can bring together parents, teachers, students, the Board, and district staff to get LAUSD back on track.

2. What is the role of the Board, and what is the role of the Superintendent? How should they interact?

The Superintendent reports to the Board and should implement policies the Board approves. Currently, the board directs neither the Superintendent nor his staff, leading to individual policies of individual staff members being implemented. This needs to change.

3. What are your criteria for an effective teacher evaluation plan?

A teacher evaluation plan must be a fair and accurate system, which combines both quantitative and qualitative standards. Moreover, our teacher evaluation plan must not pit teachers against each, but should encourage collaboration among teachers, principals, parents and students. This will also allow us to see where training and continuing education is important for teacher success.
