Teachers in LA go on Strike- SMSL202

Jessica meets up with Aurora Mireles, an elementary school teacher in East Los Angeles.  She reflects on that rainy week in January when over 30,000 LAUSD teachers went on strike.  Ms. Mireles explains the bigger systemic problems hurting public education beyond teacher’s salaries: segregation, poverty, safety and lack of funding for fundamental services.
