Re "Critical Shortage of Principals Seen in L.A.," Aug. 27:
The L.A. Unified School District has almost 700 schools. Thirty-eight of those have no principal now. But how many classrooms have no teacher at all, and how many have teachers serving with only emergency credentials? It seems to me that LAUSD needs to rethink its priorities and get teachers into the classrooms before it worries about anything else.
