Elementary school parents will rally in front of City Hall before
Thursday’s school board meeting to protest teacher and program cuts
proposed throughout the district.
Parents from Bret Harte, McKinley, Roosevelt, Stevenson and
Washington elementary Schools will rally beginning an hour before the
start of the 6 p.m. board meeting, said Niki Capshaw, a Roosevelt
parent. School board member-elect Paul Krekorian is also expected to
participate in the rally.
Capshaw organized a similar rally earlier this month at Teddy Bear
Park adjacent to Roosevelt that was attended by state Sen. Jack Scott
(D-Burbank). Scott called the gathering “grass-roots democracy in
City Hall is at 275 E. Olive Ave.
