The collection contains the records of the nonprofit educational reform organization, LEARN (Los Angeles Educational Alliance
for Restructuring Now), a major reform movement in one of the nation's largest school systems, the Los Angeles Unified School
District. The holdings in this collection span the years from 1974 to 1999 and document the internal and external history
of the organization.
The Los Angeles Educational Alliance for Restructuring Now (LEARN) was launched in 1990 by business leaders such as Robert
Wycoff (President and CEO of ARCO), Richard Riordan (lawyer, businessman, and soon to be elected as mayor of Los Angeles),
and Roy Anderson (Chairman Emeritus, Lockheed Corp.). A response to demands for changes in the severely criticized Los Angeles
Unified School District (LAUSD), this private, non-profit educational reform organization has sought to improve the quality
of education within the LAUSD by directly affecting how the nation's second largest school system is governed and operated.
