I agree with a lot of what you say, but it is true of all public schools not just LAUSD.
The bottom line is there are good teachers and schools everywhere if you are willing to get to them. Even in LAUSD there are plenty of high quality Magnet programs.
The point is minimizing the difference between public/private to make the $$$$ not worth it to automatically go private.
