The district’s real crisis is not the budget per se but that these financial problems were apparently invisible to LAUSD’s board and senior management team until Superintendent Cortines engaged outsiders to consider the situation. It’s very hard to see how the district will ever get its financial – or educational – house in order until the board is restructured to stay focused on the district’s true strategic issues, e.g., educational performance and financial viability, rather than individual member’s pet causes and “squeaky wheels”. Likewise, a management team that fails to recognize and plan for something as obvious as the financial implications of a multiyear enrollment decline should at least be reorganized and probably replaced.by Richard
