A little less than a week after graffiti with reference to the terrorist group Islamic State was found on the wall at a Vallejo school, questions were raised about teacher safety.
Last Thursday, Vallejo school district officials closed Elmer Cave Language Academy for the day after graffiti was found on one of the portable classrooms. The markings referenced “ISIS” and made threats of killing and blowing people up.
Sheila Gradwohl, president of the Vallejo Education Association — the union which represents teachers in the Vallejo City Unified School District — addressed the Vallejo school board on Wednesday stating that the district administration showed disrespect to teachers.
