"LA School Report" Launches Special Coverage Of Los Angeles School Board Election

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- One of the most expensive and contentious elections in the country this year will now be receiving continuous news coverage, thanks to a new section of LA School Report , a news site that focuses on Los Angeles public schools.

The new section at laschoolreport.com/Election2013 is expected to raise the profile of the Los Angeles School Board election in the community and beyond and provide voters with the information they need to make informed decisions as the March primary and run-off elections draw near. The campaign for three board seats could set records for spending, with expenditures likely to surpass $5 million.

"The School Board has enormous power to determine the future of our city's children," says LA School Report founder and publisher Jamie Alter Lynton. "Yet most people aren't aware there's an election or don't have easy access to the facts about the candidates and the policies at stake. We're here to drill down on the issues, hold candidates accountable and shine a light on the election process."

Launched six months ago, LA School Report is the only news source to publish original reporting and independent analysis focused exclusively on the Los Angeles public school system. The primary for the three contested school board seats will be held on March 5, with a runoff set for May 21, 2013.

The lines are sharply drawn between the powerful Los Angeles teachers union (UTLA) and a group of education reformers, including Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who has gambled much of his legacy on transforming the school system.

The election could determine the direction of the seven-member School Board, which oversees the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), the second largest district in the country, with a budget of close to $7 billion.

LA School Report: Election 2013 features in-depth information about each of the ten candidates running for school board, including questionnaires, biographies, endorsements, interviews and the latest news on campaign contributions and spending.

LA School Report is edited by nationally recognized education writer Alexander Russo and reported by a team of journalists. The website was founded by Lynton, a longtime civic activist.
