When this story broke, some people were downright angry at the teachers for insinuating their illness was from toxins in the school. One poster was so defensive, when I showed my concern for the teachers and students, he labeled me a perpetrator of mass hysteria. He wanted me to meet him at the school to apologize, in person, when it was proven that nothing was wrong. Hmmmmm?
In the meanwhile, shame on the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District. A letter from teachers with thyroid cancer was revealed October 6, 2013. Almost 5 months ago - still no definitive answers and no plan. We know the problem exists. What will it take for this mess to be remedied?
The parents are right, in that they need to take control of this themselves. The city is not doing them any favors, they only concern themselves with their legal obligations and really don't want to incriminate themselves for the gross negligence they have already shown.
