Miramonte Parents And Students Protest Reassignment

Parents and students at Miramonte School in South Los Angeles are protesting the district’s decision to replace the entire teaching staff. LAUSD made the unprecedented move after a third teacher was placed under investigation for sexual misconduct with students. But this morning, parents and students rallied in front of the school as it reopened with a new staff. The teacher’s union president was on hand to denounce the move saying it was a cheap media stunt that didn’t ensure student safety. Ernesto Arce filed this report from Los Angeles.
