Civic leaders reportedly have lost confidence in LA School Superintendent David Brewer. Will he be out of a job?  We hear pros and cons… and later talk with Mark Ridley-Thomas, LA County's first new supervisor in 12 years …who coincidentally led the search committee that came up with Admiral Brewer for LAUSD Superintendent.

LAUSD's Superintendent Brewer: Should He Stay or Should He Go? (7:27PM)

Retired Navy Admiral David L. Brewer became Superintendent of the LA Unified School District just over two years ago. The school board wanted its own manager, partly to head off Mayor Villaraigosa's effort to take control of the District. Recent elections have produced a board majority that's supportive of Villaraigosa, and it's reportedly considering buying out Brewer's contract. The Mayor has no role in the process but, as the Los Angeles Times put it today, "key civic leaders have lost confidence" in Superintendent Brewer. Will he be out of a job?
