The Los Angeles Unified School District on Tuesday agreed to change the way it educates English-language learners and black students as part of the settlement of a federal civil rights probe. The investigation did not accuse the district of intentional bias, but was initiated last year to determine whether the students were receiving an adequate education. Under the agreement, LAUSD will focus on providing effective teachers and improving instruction for students who have learned English but often struggle later on.
