Los Angeles' only indigenous charter renewal was voted on by LAUSD Board Members today. Though the charter was originally at risk of denial, the  L.A Superintendent of Schools issued a recommendation to approve its renewal several days before the vote, citing improving standards of education. The school has embarked on a campaign for several months to draw attention to their cause and emphasize the importance of indigenous education.
