The Los Angeles Board of Education on Tuesday will introduce a proposal that could make it easier to track the progress of a Los Angeles school or of the school district as a whole.

Under the measure proposed by board member Nick Melvoin, all data “determined to be accessible to the public” would be available online from a single portal. The information would be downloadable, sortable and searchable. The measure is scheduled to be voted on at a board meeting in January.

Melvoin is part of a new majority elected with financial support from charter schools, and the proposal to boost transparency is part of its broader agenda. But it would not necessarily fully apply to local charter schools, which are publicly funded but not under the direct control of L.A. Unified.

When Donald Trump won the presidential election last year, Reggie Robles felt like all his work had hit reset. Then came the drumbeat of sexual assault reports in Hollywood, politics, academia.

Robles is the associate director of campus diversity and inclusion at the University of Redlands. He also is the co-founder of a campus program called DUDES, or Dudes Understanding Diversity and Ending Stereotypes.

DUDES encourages young males to talk to each other about compassion, violence and the social pressures they feel to be masculine. It brings them together to consider with full frankness what it really means to be a man.

Adrian Llamas, a sophomore at Charter Oak High School, talks about the rise of cyberbullying in social media.

Cyberbullying is defined by dictionary.com as “the act of harassing someone online by sending or posting mean messages, usually anonymously.” With the prevalence of social media, cyberbullying is rampant in this generation.

A study done in 2015 by the Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System said, “An estimated 16% of high school students were bullied electronically in the 12 months prior to the survey.” If these numbers were applied to the 1,500 students at Charter Oak, about 240 would have been cyberbullied.
