School districts are providing more choices for parents and children, including special-themed schools and all manner of charter schools. But what are good all those choices if there's no easy way for parents to find out about them?
That seems to be the problem in the state's largest school district, Los Angeles Unifieid, according to this story by Howard Blume in the LA Times. In particular, a new high school for the arts is taking applications, but the school's existence is missing from a key school district brochure and the application process isn't even explained on the web site.
LA Unified, like so many school districts in California, is offering what would be a rich menu of choices--if there were menus.
