Parents Protest for Teacher

Parents at Baca Elementary School are protesting on behalf of one teacher.

Lupe Beltran has been teaching at Baca Elementary for 31 years and last week was given an involuntary transfer to another District 60 school.

The reason given to Beltran for the transfer was a 'Conflict Resolution,' however she says she doesn't know why it happened.

Parents began protesting yesterday, and they say they will continue to due so until the school’s principal, Evangeline Andrews, is removed from her job.

District 60 officials say the matter is a personnel issue and therefore because of confidentiality, they had no further comment.
