LAUSD board member Monica Garcia welcomes parents to East LA town hall

More than 100 parents attended a recent town hall organized by Great Public Schools Now (GPSN) and featuring LAUSD Board Member Monica Garcia at East Los Angeles College.

Parents from Endeavor Charter School, KIPP, LA Leadership Academy, Oscar de la Hoya Ánimo Charter High School, and Extera Public Schools testified about their concerns regarding facilities issues (including colocation), the lack of high-quality high schools, the failure of magnet schools to prioritize local students, and their opposition to SB 808.

On the topic of colocations, Garcia pushed for schools to work toward common goals. She also challenged parents to fight for more funding from the state.
