Argument: Multi-track year-round schools often become overcrowded
Mexican American Legal Defense Fund, Students, Parents File Suit Against State's Funding Of School - Lead plaintiff Roxana Godinez, a sophomore struggling to prepare herself for college at Fremont High School in Los Angeles, notes that her school is so crowded that it must rotate the students all year. "My learning time is constantly interrupted by the multi-track system, and when there are no classrooms for my classes, we just miss the course," she says.
Mexican American Legal Defense Fund, Students, Parents File Suit Against State's Funding Of School - The students filing suit all attend grossly overcrowded public schools that have been forced to use academically damaging multi-track-year-round calendars. Multi-tracking increases enrollment space but reduces and disrupts instruction time. Over 45% of the Los Angeles Unified School District’s 700,000 students endure permanent multi-track-year round scheduling, making LAUSD home to over 33% of the state’s multi-tracked students.
