Unprincipled: My Year Teaching Public School Under a Brutal, Out of Control Administrator

In 2014, the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) settled a 4-year-old lawsuit brought on behalf of students in low income areas that questioned the way mostly black and Latin students in LA’s public schools were being educated. In the course of the proceedings, the court designated 37 schools what became known as “Reed Schools” and asked that LAUSD address the lack of quality instruction brought on by, among other things, high teacher turnover. Many believed that the schools (and the teachers in particular) were being unfairly targeted for problems far beyond their control, like “ineffective administrators, unsafe conditions, lack of intervention for struggling students, and other problems.”
