On the podcast this week, we break down San Diego Unified’s big grad rate announcement, and how the district chose to obliquely respond to our reporting. Plus, the lead proponents for and against San Diego’s major pension reform initiative joined the show to talk about this week’s big court ruling.

In 1977, a Superior Court judge found 23 San Diego Unified schools to be so racially isolated they deprived black and Latino students’ equal rights to a quality education. He ordered the district to desegregate its schools. Nearly 40 years later, with one possible exception, Latino and black students are isolated at every school left on the original list. The district’s strategic plan for the future – called Vision 2020 – may make that worse.
