Tomorrow is the runoff for the empty seat on the Los Angeles school board, pitting veteran teacher-activist Jackie Goldberg against novice pol Heather Repinning.

In the first round, Jackie won 48% of the vote to Heather’s 13%.

The election should be a walk, but the Corporate Reformers fear Jackie, who has a wealth of experience as a former school board member and state legislator. So the billionaires are all in for Heather.

One sign of the Times is that the editorial board of the LA Times wrote an editorial praising Jackie’s experience and knowledge but endorsing the unqualified Heather.

If Jackie prevails tomorrow, as she should, the public schools will have an articulate champion, and the charter schools will no longer have a free ride.

That’s the bottom line is this race.

If you live in District 5, vote for Jackie.
