Pre-Prison Proposal Stopped!

We are excited to announce that LAUSD Board Member Tamar Galatzan
has withdrawn her motion to deputize police officers to give $250
"truancy" tickets to students while on school grounds! This decision followed a successful action on King and Vermont led by our Community Rights Taking Action students. Our defeat of the Galatzan proposal broke open a discussion about the negative impacts of truancy tickets

Counterproductive and Wasteful -- End the Tickets: Alternatives for Youth

End the Tickets: Alternatives for Youth is a collection of reports and documents that reveal the problems of Los Angeles Municipal Code 45.04 and provide alternatives for youth that do not involve the use of tickets, police, probation or courts to address the root causes of LAUSD's 50% drop-out/push-out rate. This collection was presented to Los Angeles Unified School District at the October 20th, 2009 Board meeting as a platform to end the criminalization of truancy, tardiness and other disciplinary issues and as an alternative to the Verdugo Hills High model.
