Dozens of parents marched down Sunkist Street early this morning in front of Anaheim’s Benito Juarez Elementary School. They were angered that current principal Roberto Baeza is being transferred out at the end of the year in a move made by Linda Wagner, the brand-spanking new Superintendent of the Anaheim City School District (ACSD). The parents carried protest signs and leaflets with a photo of Wagner crossed out saying “Shame on You” as they were mostly greeted by honking horns from cars passing by.
“I have seen the difference in the principals,” says Jesus Ramirez, a father of three, including a 6th grader at Juarez. “Dr. Baeza has been the best principal that this school has had. We need him to stay here.” Other parents echoed similar sentiments before a meeting with Wagner began at the school library.
“I have two children in the dual immersion program,” Julieta Olivares tells the Weekly in Spanish. “I believe it isn’t just that Wagner made a decision so soon.”
