The mayor of Los Angeles has criticized the L.A. Unified school district for not allowing more charter organizations to take over low-performing district schools when the district considered bids last February. He has urged the district to give outside groups a fair chance in the next round. An article by Bruce Fuller that appears in the Summer 2010 issue of Ed describes the role Mayor Villaraigosa has played in school reform.
