Once upon a time, a very wise woman named Kelly Mattinson was heard to say: You can never say "thank you" too many times nor is it ever too late to say "thank you".
Beckford would like to say Thank You to Board of Education rep, Tamar Galatzan for her "NO" vote at the Board of Education meeting last Tuesday.
Despite a two-week stall to hold talks between Board members, bargaining units, teachers, parents, and even the Mayor, about alternatives to layoffs, and despite weeks of protests organized by the UTLA, during their regular weekly meeting the Board faced the task of voting on the proposal which will now send many employees to the unemployment office. Joining Board President Monica Garcia in voting to approve the layoffs were Vice President Yolie Flores Aguilar, Marlene Canter, and Richard Vladovic, while Julie Korenstein, Tamar Galatzan, and Marguerite LaMotte voted no.
Our parents, staff and community thank you for your vote!
