But after losing their reelection efforts, Genethia Hudley-Hayes and Caprice Young now are packing up their offices and figuring what else to do with their lives. It is a difficult moment for them.

Genethia Hudley-Hayes is a contender to return to the Los Angeles Board of Education seat she formerly held and can claim many accomplishments. But an MBA that can't be verified has magnified other resume problems, including an inaccurate description of an honorary doctorate. These issues have become fodder for an opponent, undermining a long record of public service. On her resume, Hudley-Hayes lists an MBA with emphasis on nonprofit management from a joint program of San Jose State and the Los Angeles-based Center for Nonprofit Management.

Local politicians, community activists and others packed a special L.A. Board of Education meeting Tuesday evening to debate how to replace Marguerite Poindexter LaMotte, who died in December. The board's choices, according to district staff, are to schedule a special election or to appoint a replacement until the next regular election in 2015. Before making a decision, the board's six remaining members first listened to public speakers, included elected officials. "I simply rise to make the point that democracy matters and it matters all day long,” said L.A. County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas.

It is a source of fierce shame and more than a little defensiveness in Compton that the area's lone bastion of higher education, Compton Community College, lost its accreditation in 2005 after officials absconded with public money and the district came up short on its payroll. Six years later, however, there are signs of hope at the college, where a battle-scarred crop of leaders is fighting through threats of violence and howls of community protest but is at last confronting the truth.

Genethia Hudley Hayes, by her own admission, is either loved or hated. Don't call her a diplomat. She's not. Nor is she a politician. She claims no higher ambition than her current hot seat as president of the L.A. School Board. Impatient for change, Hayes angered many black elected officials when Mayor Richard Riordan appeared to handpick her as part of his slate of school-board reformers. With financial backing from Riordan and his friends, she beat the incumbent, Barbara M.

Caprice Young was reelected Tuesday to the presidency of the Los Angeles Board of Education, a post she has held for a year. The 4-2 vote, with one abstention, shows the board is divided in advance of a campaign for a $3.3-billion construction bond measure and labor negotiations this fall. Marlene Canter, David Tokofsky and Jose Huizar backed Young for the presidency--the same group that voted for her one year ago.

To give children better access to public transportation, the Los Angeles school board voted unanimously on Tuesday to help streamline the process for buying student discount passes. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority's application requirement is too cumbersome for children and parents, said board member Genethia Hudley-Hayes. "We should be making that as easy a process as possible."
