Kamala has won. So has Dave Jones


Kamala Harris is far ahead in the AG. primary, and we can call that one for her at this point. Chris Kelly spent a lot of money and got nowhere. Dave Jones is going to win the Dem insurance commish nod. The Supt. of Public Instruction is more interesting; Larry Acevas, a retired school superintendent who has the support of the L.A. Times but wasn't much on the political radar in a race involving two high-profile Dems from the state Legislature, is actually in the lead statewide. Tom Torlakson, who has the support of the teachers union, is close behind him - -and Gloria Romero, the fan of school privatization, is way behind.


Did you forget to include that?

Dear Writers,

It is not the case that Romero "loves privatization." Rather, she supports Innovation Which is never more badly needed than now after a generation of NCLB. Charter schools are never a threat to a district. They are generally community-based and have to make very high standards to prove that they will improve on some aspect of a program and make their findings available to public schools. They are approved through rigorous vetting and they have to live one step ahead of schools or lose their charter. It is wrong to characterize her in that manner. Thank You!
