LAUSD to stand and deliver an auditorium at last



While many in media were busy vilifying teachers, and the School Board was spending billions in construction bond money on schools we don't need so much, Garfield High's auditorium was rotting away, closed over four years ago by a fire. Now rebuilding is about to begin. Tokovsky calls it "unbelievable neglect." The pricetag for the new project is $50 million--less than .003% of the District's massive construction campaign.

The new venue will be named for Jaime Escalante.
