The Voters Have Spoken. Is the LAUSD Listening?

I believe there should be an election. I’ve been consistent for 12 years.

- LAUSD Board Member Dr. Richard Vladovic

The students in the Los Angeles Unified School District’s (LAUSD) Board District 5 have been unrepresented since Ref Rodriguez was forced from office on July 23, 2018. Considering the fact that the charter school founder pleaded guilty to crimes related to his election, these constituents have not been represented fairly since the day he took office. Board Member Scott Schmerelson offered a resolution that would have given them representation by appointing Jackie Goldberg to the seat until an election could be held. However, after a meeting poisoned by bigotry, the Charter Industry backed Board Members sided with Dr. Vladovic to leave one-seventh of the District’s stakeholders unrepresented.
