• We Are All L.A.!

    The Alliance to Reclaim our Schools stands in solidarity with our brothers and sisters of UTLA in the fight for the schools our students deserve.

  • What We Are Fighting For

    Together–parents, educators, students, school personnel, and the community–we the people of Los Angeles are fighting for the schools our students deserve. Here is what we are fighting for:

    Reduce Class Size

    LAUSD’s class sizes are among the biggest in California. Students have a better chance to succeed with smaller classes.

    Improve School Safety

    LAUSD is denying our students the supports they need to succeed. LAUSD must provide them with more access to nurses, counselors, school psychologists, and more.

    Less Testing, More Teaching

    Unnecessary standardized testing reduces critical instructional time, and low-income students of color are the most affected. LAUSD must allow educator discretion in testing.

    Invest in Community Schools

    The Community Schools model, with increased parent engagement, broadened curriculum, and wraparound services, is proven to improve student outcomes.

    Fair Wages Now

    LA’s high cost of living is causing a teacher shortage. LAUSD must offer teachers a fair wage increase.

    Support Students & Families

    LAUSD must cultivate a learning environment for all students by establishing immigrant supports, ending racially biased “random” searches, and increasing green space and early education opportunities on campuses.

    Charter School Oversight

    LAUSD must protect neighborhood schools by regulating charter industry growth and charter school co-locations on to neighborhood school campuses.

    Fund Our Schools

    California is the richest state in the nation, yet ranks 43rd out of 50 states in per-pupil funding. LAUSD must fight at the local, state, and national level to increase funding to $20,000 per student by 2020.
