Community members protest charter school on baldwin hills elementary school campus
Staff, parents and community members voiced growing concerns about the co-habitation of Baldwin Hills Elementary School with the New LA Elementary charter school. They said it’s a drain on resources and are demanding the charter school be relocated.
“This isn’t a new charter school, but you want to go the easy route. ‘Oh, we’ll just come over here,’ because they think we’re just a neighborhood school. Our kids deserve the same rights as any other school and we should have that,” said Rita Richard, a parent and alum of Baldwin Hills Elementary.
