It looks like The Los Angeles Unified School District is finally making some progress on fixing the payroll system that left some teachers without pay for months while overpaying others. The district is now asking about 36,000 employees to give back the $53 million they were overpaid. The man in charge also comments on his proposal to create a special-focus district of LAUSD's 44 lowest-performing middle and high schools and weighs in on the achievement gap summit taking place in Sacramento. Guest host Oscar Garza takes listener calls and gets a report card on the Brewer's one-year tenure as Superintendent.
