This injustice happened to Mrs. Zink.

Whether you like the controversial math teacher or not, this sets a dangerous
precedent. Can any LJHS faculty member - even a beloved one -
be removed with a dubious online petition?


Mrs. Zink was completely exonerated from accusations by the district. She was expected to return in Febru-
ary. An unverified online petition shut her out. Whether you liked Mrs. Zinks class or not, this sets a very
dangerous precedent. Could a shady online survey get your favorite teacher removed from LJHS?
What other teachers or administrators could get ousted next?


Send a clear signal to LJHS administrators: they can no longer
defy the District or bully our incredible teachers.
