We hear our teachers and want to work with them. Los Angeles Unified and teachers agree—smaller class sizes, more teachers, counselors, nurses and librarians in schools would make our schools better. We know teachers deserve to be paid more and a working environment where kids can have the best possible education. We are committed to providing teachers with the best offer and as much support as we can, given Los Angeles Unified’s resources.

“I came to L.A. Unified to help do the work. I’m a product of public schools, and I wouldn’t be here today but for my great public education. I have committed myself to making sure children in our community have the same opportunities I was provided with. The best opportunity I was ever given was a great public education.”

-Superintendent Austin Beutner
