#LAUSD and its unions just took a (small) step toward cutting its huge #healthcare costs More from @nickmelvoin, @LASchools and @UTLAnow on the tentative health care agreement  http://www.scpr.org/news/2018/01/19/79978/in-deal-with-unions-lausd-takes-small-step-toward/ 
Update: @LASchools says this deal will save the district $195 million over three years. (They spend $1.1 billion per year on healthcare.)  https://twitter.com/kystokes/status/954244107769020417
