Parents Demand Elementary Principal’s Dismissal

ST. LOUIS PARK, Minn. (WCCO) — Dozens of parents showed up at a St. Louis Park school board meeting Monday evening to ask that an elementary school principal be removed.

The parents argue Aquila Elementary School principal Freida Bailey and others are not keeping students safe when it comes to bullying. Other parents said Bailey was showing a lack of leadership and judgment.

Parents said changing administration would be better for both students and teachers. One person in attendance said that 16 teachers were so upset they requested transfers from the school, adding there are only 19 classroom teachers at Aquila.

A supporter of Bailey’s said the accusations are not fair, and that only six teachers have asked to transfer.

More than 60 parents showed up for the meeting.
