The Big News, Part I
Schools trustee Scott Barnett wants the district to end the heated process of closing schools, worried his district will bear the brunt because of his colleagues’ inability to make tough political decisions. President Richard Barrera says he’s already on it, concluding that schools should only be closed if it improves service for kids.
The Big News, Part II
Credit ratings agency Moody’s has downgraded the San Diego Unified School District’s credit rating one notch, citing its failure to make enough cuts to keep pace with shrinking revenues.
How They Tie Together
