Leonie Haimson attended the meeting of the school’s leadership team last night and reports here on what she learned.

The complaints against the principal were many. The parents refused to leave when the meeting ended. Although police were present, someone made a decision not to arrest the parents.

Debbie Meier, who founded the school in 1974, taped a message of support for the parents.
