The Los Angeles school board voted to give control of 22 schools to groups of teachers, who beat out a number of outside charters and a nonprofit group run by the city's mayor in their bid to run a majority of the 30 new and low-performing schools up for grabs as part of the district's school-reform efforts. The remaining schools will be run by charter operators, the nonprofit organization or under shared leadership. Union leaders said they were heartened by the decision, while charter supporters said they were dismayed by the board's actions.
