LA teachers approve agreement to run their own schools
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Los Angeles Unified teachers have approved a new labor agreement with the school district.
The deal gives teachers wide-ranging decision-making power in running their schools.
Under the pact, charter operators won't take over low performing schools.
Instead, teachers and administrators will be allowed charter-like autonomy to write their own management plans for individual schools.
The teachers' union said nearly 70 percent of its members voted in favor of the agreement.
