Los Angeles will split Jordan High into three small schools

Schools will be run by outside groups

From The Los Angeles Times: Los Angeles school district leaders say they will split low-performing Jordan High School into three small schools that will be run by outside groups. All current employees will have to reapply for their jobs or work elsewhere. It marks the second time the district has targeted a campus for such a forced makeover. Fremont High School also was restructured last year, a move that drew fierce criticism from the teachers union and resulted in the departure of most teachers. That time, however, outside groups were not involved.
