LA Weekly's Howard Blume takes a hard look at LAUSD's overcrowding problem. On the eve of the appointment of Roy Romer as Los Angeles Unified School District's new superintendent, LAUSD faces a self-made crisis. After previously failed attempts to build the Belmont Learning Complex and a proposed high school in South Gate, there are no current plans on the books.
