Nothing. The LAUSD spends more than $7.5 billion annually, yet the district is so badly mismanaged that money hasn’t led to any significant improvements in classrooms or test results. A 2018 Reason Foundation report found that over the last 15 years, the district has lost more than 245,000 students, yet staffing (administration and teachers) during that same time period has increased. Since 2014, the cost of the district’s employee benefits has increased 44% and its spending on outside consulting services has risen a whopping 110%.
What is the LAUSD doing to stabilize school funding and to protect teachers and instructional programs?
