LA Unified Teachers Protest the LA Times

The controversy surrounding the LA Times’ decision to publish an online database of teachers’ effectiveness isn’t going away any time soon. Yesterday, hundreds of teachers from the LA Unified School District gathered outside the Times’ downtown headquarters in protest.

“I feel, in a way, betrayed,” Lee Bartoletti of Ivanhoe Elementary School in Silver Lake told a Times reporter. “The Times has reneged on its mission of telling the truth.”

The protest was organized by the union United Teachers Los Angeles, which has also called for a boycott of the paper. The UTLA website didn’t have much to say on the matter, posting only a sentence or two about the protest.

“Members give the L.A. Times a consistent grade: F.”
