    Excellent Letter. I remember Dr. Sleeter’s excellent talks at the former MAS Department’s Summer Educational Transformation Conferences. Her article on Ethnic Studies engagement and outcomes is critical evidence that LAUSD (90% Students of Color) and Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District NEED to look at before they make decisions that will impact the thousands and thousands of students and their futures.
