By Louis Pugliese

Candidate for Board Member; Los Angeles Unified School District; District 6

This information is provided by the candidate
We must provide the very best education for ALL students. To equalize the playing field for our learners, we must establish schools that focus on SKILLS FOR THE 21st CENTURY.
Ideas for REAL Change

-Expand the influence of the Board, Parents and Teachers in State and Federal Education Policy

-Return the Board's focus to Instruction and Student Motivation- not just Construction

-Ensure the rights of experienced teachers, parents, and educators- not just insiders- to establish and innovate new school models

-End the "Go to college or go away policy"- Offer alternative, competency based diplomas

-Demand full, public transparency for all external contracting and purchasing

-Implement a genuine Green Policy that includes students and curriculum- not just facilities

-Consolidate all of the non-traditional programs into one Division of Extended Learning for Career and Vocational education/Adult and online learning

-Alternative diplomas

-Worksite Education and Industry Partnerships

-Reduce the fat bureaucracy- return resources to the classroom.
