“Yeah, it sounds like a good idea. It would better overall for all LAUSD students.”

“For me, it was hard when certain people didn’t speak English well. If it’s for good reasons, I agree with it.”

- Viviana Ramos, sophomore journalism major

- Jaclynn Smith, undeclared junior

“It is segregation, in a way. I don’t think the [change] will affect English speakers [who speak well.] It’s like [the policy] is going back to the ‘60s.”

“I see the merit behind the idea. Kids could feel segregated [by the change].”
