L.A. Teachers Vote No Confidence in Supt. Deasy – Eric Spillman Reports
LOS ANGELES — LAUSD Superintendent John Deasy has a history of clashing with the teacher’s union, and now they’re letting him know they’re not happy about it.
In the weeklong referendum that ended Wednesday, 91% of the participating teachers expressed disapproval of Deasy, with about 17,700 of the union’s more than 32,000 members casting ballots, the teachers union announced Thursday.
The superintendent called the vote “nonsense” even before knowing its outcome, and a group of civic leaders rallied to Deasy’s defense.
