Where to reach Education Matters

Thank you for reading Education Matters as we get started. We hope you'll continue to participate by helping us tell the education stories you want and need to read. We want to know all about your experience with schools as a parent, administrator, teacher, student or resident in Los Angeles and across California. Our mission is to help you better understand your school system, to keep those systems honest, and to also entertain you with fun stories about education. 

You can help us serve you by keeping in touch. We want to know about teachers, homework, uniforms and commutes. Is your school doing something unique that excites you? Do you suspect cheating on standardized tests? Do you think your son's teacher is exceptional? Did your daughter's school bus break down? Is your school's lunch revolting? Or is it delicious?
We want to know.
