Times tells half the school story

June 11, 2007

Re "LAUSD, the school bully," Opinion, June 7

This article denigrates and patronizes the teachers of Los Angeles. By publishing only one side of a complex debate about the future of Locke High School, this article shows the animus toward teachers and their union. If those favoring the Green Dot charters were honestly committed to reform, they would have provided a forum for all of the concerned parties to debate converting Locke to a charter school before the teachers voted. If the teachers were not offered all of their choices and the ramifications of their votes from their union and their employer before they voted, the results would mean little. The school district is not the real culprit and bully -- The Times is.
