The LAUSD is a large administrative body that oversees a multitude of schools so rating it unequivocally should be done by someone with a long attendance or one who has been to many schools in the district. I have done both, I also attended schools outside the district, helping me contrast my opinion towards the LAUSD. I attended Sherman Oaks Elementary, George Ellery Hale Middle School, William Howard Taft High, and El Camino Real High (now "Charter High School"). I am very pleased with the academic integrity of these schools, especially El Camino Real, my alma mater! I was taught by diligent and caring teachers, and I was advised by well-informed counselors.
Even as a U.S. citizen, a student's unique appearance or skin complexion may work against them at school. Contrary to where some schools can be a place where predicaments like bullying or isolation occur, LAUSD embraces and fosters a diverse student body.
