LA Roundtable #79: Remaking Crenshaw High School - Feb 12, 2013

Crenshaw High School has long been one of the poorest-performing schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District. The LAUSD has proposed many plans to improve the school. Some have been implemented, and some have not, but student performance on academic tests continues to be far below acceptable standards. Now there is a plan to create three new magnet schools on the Crenshaw High School campus. Is this a good idea, or the latest in a long line of failures? A parent, a student, and a community activist discuss what it will take to "save" Crenshaw High on this edition of LA Roundtable.
