In the past three months, Parent Power Network and Students for Education Reform members have come together to plan a candidate forum event for the LAUSD school board elections 7th district. The focus of this forum is to amplify the voices of students and parents. Together, we hope to gain momentum in this fight for equity and implement more resources that lessen the achievement gap.
