State audit on LAUSD handling of child abuse includes look at 6 schools

March 07, 2012

The L.A. Unified Board of Education will vote on a resolution next Tuesday that looks at making it a district priority to call on state legislators to change the dismissal proceedings of certificated employees after a flurry of teacher misconduct cases over the weeks.

The resolution, authored by board member Tamar Galatzan and co-sponsored by Nury Martinez and board president Monica Garcia, states that "state policies make the dismissal process ineffective and costly" and that the problem is not just a challenge for LAUSD but also a statewide and national issue.
