I’m sure most readers of this blog have already heard about the L.A. elementary school where two teachers have been arrested on molestation charges, and the District’s decision to remove all of the teachers at the school.
Parents are justifiably upset about the danger their children were in, and now many appear doubly upset at the decision made (perhaps unilaterally, but that’s not clear to me) by District officials to take so many teachers away from students with whom they have developed relationships.
All I know is what I hear in the media, and it sounds like an awful situation. From what I see in the media reports I have at the end of this post, though, it seems like removing all the teachers with what appears to be minimal input from parents might not have been the wisest choice.
What do you think?
