I think it has to do with the change of demographic over the course of 50 years and very little to do with prop. 13. Statistically, if you're poor, don't speak English, and don't have a hs diploma/degree, then more than likely you're not going to churn out kids who excel academically no matter how much money you put into the system. Also, from a sociological standpoint, statically speaking, hispanics tend not to do as well as whites or Asians when it comes to educational achievements. It's a fact. If you have the majority hispanics in LAUSD... especially ESL hispanics... well... there you have it. It's not rocket science.

Was similar in 1920s New York, Pennsylvania, midwest, eastern seaboard with a lot of poor performing Italians, Poles, and Germans many of whom were at the bottom of the socioeconomic ladder in their home countries. Came here, may not have passed fifth grade, worked on the docks, in the mills and in the mines.
