Bringing Accountability for All LAUSD Students

"Carl Petersen is a candidate for the Los Angeles Unified School Board in 2017. He is also a close observer of school board meetings and a strong supporter of public schools"

 “The people I represent most really want their kid to be able to read and write and that is not true...yet. So I believe our biggest problem is  that most of our kids, all of our kids, can't read.

- Mónica García, 9/20/16

Ms. García has been on the LAUSD Board for ten years and she says that our kids still can’t read? It is time for a change! I am a father of five who has fought the LAUSD to get my two daughters the special education services they needed. Now I fight for ALL KIDS:

The LAUSD School Board needs a parent's perspective. None of the current Board members has a child enrolled in the District. I am a father of five who has fought the LAUSD to get my children the services that they needed. Now I want to fight for ALL KIDS.

One size education does not fit all. The District must provide opportunities to all students, not just those who are college-bound. We will fight to block the closure of special education centers and return funding to vocational education.

I support the NAACP’s resolution. We need a “moratorium on charter school expansion and for the strengthening of oversight in governance”. Unlike Mónica García's campaign, this campaign will not be funded by the charter industry. I will answer to the parents and students of the district, not corporate donors.

 CHANGE IS COMING: March 7, 2017

All Kids Are Our Kids!
