Probe is a sign of greater federal efforts to enforce civil rights
From The Los Angeles Times: The U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights will investigate the Los Angeles Unified School District to determine whether the nation's second-largest district provides adequate services to students learning English. Federal officials turned their attention to L.A. Unified because so many English learners fare poorly and because they make up about a third of district enrollment, more than 220,000 students.
