LAUSD votes against delay of district-wide early start

LOS ANGELES

The Board of Education voted against a resolution to postpone the early start calendar district-wide.

That means for the 2012-2013 school year, classes at all LAUSD schools will begin August 14.

People in favor of the early start say it leads to improvements in test scores and gives students a jump on preparing for college. Opponents say research is mixed and that the early start will cost too much money.
