Here's your news this morning: The L.A. Unified School Board has voted to double the amount of funding it redistributes to its schools through its 'Student Equity Needs Index.'  The likely result:  a budget boost for schools serving Black students, English learners, and students in the most extreme poverty; Housing has gotten less affordable in all Southern California counties, compared to a year ago according to new data from the California Association of Realtors, and more. This program is made possible in part by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, a private corporation funded by the American people.
