Public Forums Are Nearly Vacant as LAUSD Hunts for a New Schools Chief

Stanley Prince had a lot to say about the next leader of Los Angeles schools last week, and he was grateful for the chance. For 40 minutes, the assistant pastor had the undivided attention of two consultants involved in the search for the superintendent of the L.A. Unified School District.
