If you aren't bilingual ... then forget it !!!
Substitute Teacher (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – July 13, 2016
As the demographics in Los Angeles county have changed dramatically within the couple of decades, it is to the advantage of any applicant to be bilingual - Spanish speaking. As a result, finding the very best teachers takes a backseat to finding teachers who are bilingual. Classes state wide are supposed to be taught in English (which includes language assistance with ESL students), however, with so many non-English speakers in the county, the district has become more of a Spanish speaking one than an English speaking one. Per the above, there isn't as much diversity within the Los Angeles school district as there once was - i.e. 73% of the student population is Latino.
Probably a good environment for Latino students
Not a very good environment for non-Latino students
