Two Los  Angeles teachers write with pride about the accomplishments of the recent strike. They note that the strike proved two things: one, the teachers’ demands were just and had overwhelming support from stakeholders: students, parent, and teachers; two, Superintendent Austin Beutner is out of his depth and lac is the trust of those he serves: he should go.

Beutner’s problem, they say, is that he has spent his career serving shareholders, not stakeholders. His prior business experience leaves him ill-equipped to lead the nation’s second biggest school district. 

He came to disrupt thedistrict but demonstrated his lack of readiness for the job he holds.
