Dr. Erika Torres

After 10 Years, It’s Time to Return Control of Inglewood Schools to the Community

Last week, I wrote a commentary marking 10 years since the Inglewood Unified School District (IUSD) Board of Education lost control of Inglewood schools. I requested that it not be printed when I was informed that Dr. Erika Torres had announced she was stepping down from her position as IUSD County Administrator because she had a recurrence of breast cancer. The commentary was very critical of Torres’ administration so under the circumstances, I decided to rewrite it removing the focus from her. I wish her well as she concentrates on her health and her family’s wellbeing On Oct. 3, 2012,
