L.A. Unified 'negligence' on child abuse claims led to state audit request, official says

March 07, 2012

State Assemblyman Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens) ups the tone of his comments on LAUSD's handling of child abuse claims in a release today on his request for a state performance audit on the issue.

Lara, who represents southeast Los Angeles, said he made the request after recent reports on "LAUSD's negligence in managing and documenting" claims of child abuse.
