Justice For WBHS English Teachers

This petition had 647 supporters

Hello fellow concerned parents/students of the WBSD district. I am sure many of you have heard what has happened by now, but if not, 4 teachers from the English Department have been fired/suspened (it is unclear which) for telling administrators the curriculum is unhelpful, and that the students are being overtested. These teachers were loved by all, Mrs.Barrett, Mrs.Cassel, Mr.Drida, and Mr.Schafer, myself being impacted by Mr.Schafer the most, but I've heard nothing but good things about the others. Mr.Shafer was one of the best teachers I've ever met, he cared for each and everyone of his students, and was involved with each and everyone of their lives, wether it be taking an interest in their extra ciriculars or simply asking them how their day was. I was brought to tears when hearing this, this isn't just impacting the teachers and their families at home, but the hundreds of students they have inspired and taught all year. The end of the school year is upon us, and that means finals exams, but now these students are only left with what we are told "certified" teachers who are replacing their spot. This is unfair, and cruel to practically everyone, and the students feel mistreated. I know nothing can probably change for the rest of the 5 days left in the school year but I am hoping that if enough people sign this petition we could bring these teachers back for next year, I know it would make so many happy. My heart goes out to all affected.
