From The Los Angeles Times: The Los Angeles Unified School District has reopened a revamped Fremont High School. The campus, with new teachers making up the majority of the staff, has become a local test case for a school makeover approach being tried around the country. Last December, Supt. Ramon C. Cortines announced that he would personally oversee sweeping reforms at Fremont. The most striking was his edict that all staff members — including teachers, counselors, custodians and cafeteria workers — had to reapply for their jobs at the persistently low-performing campus. Among the disturbing data that led to his decision: Fewer than 2 percent of students tested as proficient in the math course they took last year.
