Protest on tap for board meeting

Group not happy with superintendent

A parent-based organization in Seattle, is planning a peaceful protest during Seattle Public Schools' district board meeting tonight.
Citing its distrust and lack of faith in Superintendent Maria Goodloe-Johnson, Seattle Education 2010 insists Goodloe-Johnson be removed. They are asking Seattle parents, teachers, students and community members to call on the Seattle School board to not renew Goodloe-Johnson's contract, not to award her a pay raise nor bonus, and to consider firing her with cause for incompetence.
Protestors are planning to gather at 4:15 p.m., at the John Stanford Center for Educational Excellence (JSCEE) where a driver will take marchers to First Avenue South and Edgar Martinez Way. From there protestors were march their way back to JSCEE in time for the 7 p.m. board meeting.
"We have our own security, but if it's a peaceful protest, I don't see a need for it," said Seattle Public Schools spokesperson Teresa Wippel.[[In-content Ad]]
