L.A. school board, union still at odds over budget

L.A. school board, union still at odds over budget

The district appeals to the teachers union to take six unpaid days off to help balance the books and save jobs. But parents hold rallies in support of the union, which wants no cuts.

While parents held rallies up and down California on Tuesday to protest school budget cuts, the state's largest school district appealed to its teachers union to agree to take unpaid time off to help the district balance its books and save jobs.

"We're trying to hold the house together," said Los Angeles Board of Education member Richard Vladovic.
