Several teachers are being excessed from Baldwin academy: some with permission to re-apply, and some -without. All of these teachers have done nothing wrong and have had exceptional recommendations from their students’ parents. Still -at least one of the teachers was told that she doesn’t fit into the vision and the mission of the school. No further explanation was provided to parents and their questions are being left unanswered.

After attending school’s governing-board meeting the parents in attendance learned about the troubling trend: - many teachers have complained about school’s principal: many were belittled or reprimanded for speaking out and voicing their ideas if they contradicted the principal. The staff is scared to speak up, as they are afraid of being excessed next.

We, the undersigned, are concerned citizens -both, parents and teachers of Baldwin academy students who urge the city of Boston to rescind principal’s decision of excessing several lead teachers from the school. Our children/students have had wonderful experiences with these teachers and would like to see them continue their careers in this school. We also learned that in reality there are 6 positions available for next year at the Baldwin - enough for all of the excessed teachers. None of this is necessary or is driven by budget cuts.

We want our kids to be educated in a safe and nurturing environment, surrounded by teachers who love kids & their school community. Excessing these teachers will destroy the core of an amazing Baldwin community as we know it!


We also urge the education department to look into the conduct of the school’s principal – Min-Jen Taylor based on numerous concerns voiced by teaching staff about her leadership style.
