After a final vote of union members, it's official:  teachers and students in the Los Angeles Unified School District will be headed back to classrooms by mid-April.  It's not all teachers and students, at least not yet, but after months of fierce resistance by the UTLA, nearly 90-percent of union members voted in favor of returning to campuses.   Talking about going back to classrooms for months is one thing, but actually pulling it off isn't going to be easy.  There are confusing hybrid schedules to deal with and getting re-acclimated to regular school life, which will be a challenge for teachers and students alike. Glenn Sacks is a social studies teacher at James Monroe High School in LAUSD..........and while he is the UTLA rep for Monroe High, he is speaking us today on his own accord and not as a representative of the union.
