Torlakson makes ‘questionable choice’ for Inglewood Schools

Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson has announced that Dr. Thelma Meléndez de Santa Ana will be the sixth State Administrator to lead the Inglewood Unified School District.
A little less than five years ago the California Legislature passed an emergency loan bill, Senate Bill (SB) 533, approving an up to $55 million loan to Inglewood Unified. As a condition of accepting the state loan, the community surrendered control of the school district to Torlakson.
