Over the past several weeks, United Way, along with numerous community organizations, has hosted public forums for the candidates in three LAUSD school board races. These moderated discussions have allowed parents, teachers, students, and community members to get to know the candidates in a race whose outcome will shape the future of L.A. schools for years to come.
We invite you to view all three candidate forums below. Or, you can read the candidates' answers to a series of questions created by United Way.
Board District 2 Candidate Answers: Abelardo Diaz, Monica Garcia, AnnaMarie Montanez, and Isabel Vazquez
Board District 4 Candidate Answers: Kate Anderson and Steve Zimmer
