Los Angeles Unified Board of Education Statement on UTLA Negotiations

'The Board of Education stands with students, their families and employees to ensure learning and safety comes first in L.A. Unified. There is currently an effort to call for a strike that pits adults versus adults when students and their families will bear the brunt of a strike action. For this reason, we, the Board of Education do not support a strike. We hope the shared responsibility to put students first will lead to a common sense resolution that acknowledges the hard work of our employees while addressing the safety and instructional needs of students and the financial solvency of L.A. Unified."
