A Kid’s First Agenda for LA Schools: We Stand With You John Deasy

Margaret MeadI support Superintendent John Deasy and no matter the outcome of today’s LAUSD Board meeting, I am proud to be among the many, many parents, educators, community members, civic and business leaders who have stood up and publicly stated, “John Deasy, we believe in your leadership and we support you!”

“An unusually broad range of major L.A. civic and social justice groups such as Teach for America and the Urban League are striking back today, holding what’s expected to be a spirited rally outside L.A. Unified headquarters in support of Deasy (expect his detractors to show up as well).  Even the often-timid L.A. Chamber of Commerce is piping up:  ‘Firing Superintendent Deasy, or making his life so miserable that he has no choice but to lead,’ Gary Toebben, president of the chamber, recently wrote in a weekly column, ‘is not in the best interests of the students of Los Angeles.  It is imperative that the school board make every effort to retain one of the top superintendents in the country.”
