What We’re Watching: Mayor-Led Turnarounds in Los Angeles

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has launched the Partnership for Los Angeles Schools, a collaboration between the city of Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Unified School District to turn around 22 low-performing schools.

This video highlights some of the strategies being pursued by the Partnership, which include identifying students for Gifted and Talented Education (GATE), parent engagement, professional development for teachers and principals, school accountability, use of new education technologies, protecting schools from the disruption of disproportionate teacher layoffs, and fostering inviting learning environments.
