Sharonne Hapuarachyand Taylor Broom help us understand how the LA Unified School District (LAUSD) is threatening to destroy another of LA's historic High Schools in South Los Angeles with "Reconstitution"--a radical and racist restructuring program from outside the school, with no input from teachers or the community, starting with the firing of all the faculty and selective re-hiring.This has happened at many Black and Latino schools across South LA and a large group of Dorsey Parents and Alumni are fighting to NOT let Reconstitution happen at Dorsey. The group held a rally in front of Dorsey on Thursday, September 28, 2012.
