Los Angeles - At a cost of 34-million-dollars the California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System (CalPADS), was designed to track over six million students in 1000 plus school districts.
CalPADS was supposed to be the biggest and best system for tracking student performance. The information collected from CalPADS was supposed to aid teachers, but at Gigi Graciette reports, so far it's CalPADS that's needed help.
Assemblyman Tom Torlakson and former School District Superintendent Larry Aceves are candidates for Superintendent of Public Instruction. They both joined us live for a discussion on CalPADS.
