On January 31, 2014, Maia Wu, our 8th grade student body president and 4.0 student, was kicked out of Monterey Highlands Elementary. Alhambra Unified School District strikes again -- this time targeting Maia and her two younger siblings. Why? Their mother was simply doing what any concerned parent should do for their children -- which is, ask questions when questions needed to be asked. Please take a few minutes to listen to Maia's story. If you see the injustice in this, please sign this petition and help us get Maia and her siblings back in their school. This is part of the broader national headline about where the US education system is headed. Thank you.

We want Maia Wu, our student body president, and her siblings to be able to attend Monterey Highlands again! This is important to us because Maia Wu is our student body president, a classmate, and a friend. She is an amazing student and she deserves to be able to go back to school. Why should she be kicked out of school for speaking up for the people who are too scared to speak up for themselves?
