STREET BEAT: ‘What can be done to close the achievement gap in South L.A. schools?’
Compiled by Shawnte Passmore and Gary McCarthy outside the Los Angeles Unified School District headquarters downtown.
“You need more intervention from the school district itself and they need to do something actually positive to help the neighborhoods.”
“The re-implementation of the A-G courses can really help us because I feel like a lot of students don’t get that chance.”
“Get more resources, as far as counselors. You can’t have one counselor for a 1,000 students. Get more teachers that are kind of ready to teach students that look like us.”
