Facing felony charges and more than two dozen criminal counts, Ref Rodriguez announced Tuesday that he is stepping down as president but will remain on the school board. As members of the union representing 35,000 teachers and educators in the Los Angeles Unified School District, we do not believe this goes far enough. We do not have confidence in his ability to lead, and therefore are calling for his resignation from the LAUSD School Board.
The criminal charges against Ref Rodriguez are very serious, and we expect him to be held accountable. While we will await more details on the specifics of this case, we as a city are again challenged by the question of how corporate special interests like the California Charter School Association and their billionaire allies have often been allowed to act with impunity, and above the law.
