Morningside High School stage sit-in to support principal

IUSDThe entire student body staged a sit-in at Morningside High School today to protest the removal of Dr. Reggie Sirls as principal.  The sit-in was conducted peacefully and without incident.

I must commend the students for showing the California Department of Education that yes, not only does the community support IUSD teachers and staff, the students do too!  Students are shoved into classrooms with too many students.  Students have to attempt to eat horrific food served to them.  Students have to sit with substitutes who do not teach.  Students are losing every day in the IUSD.

Students are the cornerstone of revolutions.  If you don’t know, you better ask somebody!
