  • copy of letter to Micheal Vaughn....

    Dear Mr. Vaughn

    I read, with interest, your comments about your/the Bd. disappointed over the Curie HS LSC vote.

    A comparable situation occurred at Lincoln Park in the early fall. Nearly

    900 students signed a support petition and the vast majority of staff members supported my reinstatement, the Friends of LPHS group supported me - as well as many parents, alumni, and community members.

    When we contacted to the Bd . for assistance, it turned its back and hid

    behind the process. You were televised with statements supporting the fact the process of my termination was handled in a correct manner.

    Now that it is a

    well regarded competent administrator being terminated, you/the Bd. find it a disappointing and regrettable situation.

    You/the Bd. should not flip flop on your evaluation of theprocess; it makes you and the Bd. members appear to be hypocrites.

    Ms. Bernie Eshoo
