Want to see what the San Diego Unified, its teachers union and a local nonprofit agreed to when they decided to create pilot schools for community-based school reform? Here’s the pact that the school board gave the green light in January. Check it out.

The agreement specifically spells out that the pilot schools would keep following their labor agreements, which means that becoming a reform school isn’t a get-out-of-your-union-contracts-free card. You’ll also notice that the pilot program was supposed to start last month; it’s April and it’s still in the works.

My latest story focuses on the how the rift between the teachers union and school district has disrupted the reform plan, which was built around unity.
