Now that the LAUSD Board of Education has passed the motion requiring that all students (starting with the freshman class of 2012-2013) pass a mandatory A-G college preparatory curriculum in order to receive a high school diploma, have Board Members really given any thought as to what happens next? While this is certainly an ambitious and laudable goal, it is going to take much more than the strike of President Mónica García’s gavel or a tweet from Superintendent Deasy to make it successful. AALA sent a letter to Board Members prior to the vote which asked that they delay action on the motion to allow for proper planning and funding. Successful implementation of the A-G vision requires solid processes, procedures, budgets, strategies and supports. However, the Board majority ignored AALA’s recommendation and passed the motion with none of this in place.
