This week: Louis and John speak with John Deasy, the former superintendent of Los Angeles Unified, who on June 1 became superintendent of Stockton Unified, a 40,000-student district 1/15th as big as L.A. Unified. Deasy talks about his priorities for the high-poverty district and the need to strike a balance between urgency for improvement and patience for long-term change – a lesson he has learned from his time in Los Angeles. Louis and John also play an excerpt from Gov. Jerry Brown’s remarks to California Community Colleges’ board of governors in which he urges them to pursue the promise of a new online college.
