Week After Greenfield School Board Protests, Similar Scene Plays Out in New Berlin
New Berlin teachers, like those in Greenfield, were displeased with the input they had on their employee handbook.
Protesters from both sides of the aisle. A police presence. Cheers, jeers and chants.
Sound familiar? It should.
One week after protesters voiced their displeasures with the Greenfield School District administrators and School Board at a board meeting Aug. 22, nearly an identical scene played out at New Berlin West High/Middle School on Monday, according to a story in today's Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
The story said New Berlin school district employees are upset with their lack of input in the new school handbook, which was approved at last night's meeting. Greenfield teachers have had similar complaints with their administration.
One major difference between the two meetings: New Berlin moved its into the school's auditorium a week after Greenfield School Board president Bruce Bailey was criticized for not doing the same.
