In a campaign where New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg donated 1.25 million to an independent expenditure supporting her opponent, San Pedro Elementary Chapter Chair and 5th grade teacher Monica Ratliff won her election to LAUSD School Board District 6. An independent expenditure launched on behalf of her opponent spent over $2 million. Her campaign raised roughly $52,000. She won! Public education is not for sale! Here’s to looking forward to Monica Ratliff’s leadership starting July as the newest member of the LAUSD School Board. Hopefully now the School Board will begin to put students and families first!
