Day 2 of a mammoth strike that shut down classes at Los Angeles Unified School District schools dawned on Wednesday, March 22, with protesters in rainy day garb as they rallied amid showers at 4:30 a.m. at a school bus yard, this one on South Hoover Street in Gardena.

With schools again closed, parents of more than 400,000 students would continue to scramble for places for their children to spend the day.

More are expected to gather for an 11 a.m. rally at LAUSD’s Local District East office in Lincoln Heights. read more
