Los Angeles Unified School District Reviews
LAUSD isn't all bad, but it isn't the best either. Recently like a month ago, our teachers went on strike for themselves and for us. Our class sizes are way too big for just one teacher to teach around 40 students and that's one of the things they fought for. Also, my school had a nurse once a week, how terrible is that! The food they serve, that I no longer eat, makes my stomach hurt, it's cold, and not cooked. Our teachers went on strike for us and got some of the things they asked for like more nurses, but they didn't get the raise they wanted they only got a 3% increase. One thing I can say about the district and my school is they have handed me great opportunities like internships that pay me, SAT prep classes, chances to travel outside of state (CA), etc. The counselor I have has helped me by writing my recommendation letters, my AP teachers have taught me advanced learning, the college center has made it available to me to find opportunities, and my coaches have supported me.
LAUSD has always been an academic institution that took role in my education, there are many great network involvements and academic training for college readiness. I would like to see change in equality and giving the students what they deserve such as more electives that are fundamental for basic life skills. As well as healthy fresh meals that are non frozen or repeatedly given on the same week!
My experience in LAUSD has been different depending on the school I go to. I have met many people who have heavily influenced my life and changed my outlook on the world. Throughout my time of being here, I've encountered both good and bad teachers. Teachers who believe in me and push me to be the best person I can be. While the people I've met have changed my life in more ways than I can count, the resources and management of this district could be improved upon. Since there isn't enough money to have more teachers at my school, classes like my music and history class are packed with too little desks and chairs for students, ranging from a class of 25 to a class of 40! I hope that LAUSD fixes this problem so that my school life isn't affected by this anymore.
