Angry parents, teachers protest principal firings in Seattle, Puyallup
It's been quite a week for high schools in the region.
Seattle's school board faced a big rally of angry parents and teachers late yesterday afternoon (Thurs) after interim schools superintendant Susan Enfield ousted the popular principal of Ingraham High, Martin Floe. According to the Seattle Times, Enfield cited 'stagnant' test scores and said Ingraham was the second-lowest performing high school in the Seattle district.
Meantime, in Puyallup, students, parents and teachers at Rogers High School are still reeling from the news that Principal Scott Brittain has resigned and will step down at the end of next month.
