Center School Staff and Students Plan to Protest at School Board Meeting Tonight

Posted by on Wed, Jun 5, 2013 at 11:43 AM

I reported on Monday that the school district appears to be planning on transferring popular humanities teacher Jon Greenberg away from the small alternative high school in the Seattle Center after his class on race and social justice got one set of parents in a tizzy. There's a school board meeting tonight, and the publicly announced speaker list includes 10 people (out of the 25 on the schedule) testifying about the Center School, including current staff.

Melissa Westbrook over at Save Seattle Schools blog reports:

I am told there will be some kind of protest/gathering before the Board meeting tonight over the issue of the Center School teacher. I believe there will be some media presence including tv. I'm not sure this is the best way for the district to end the school year (this being the last Board meeting before the last day of school) but that was someone's choice to have made.

This shit is gonna get really interesting.

So where is the teacher's union in all this?
