Administrator Laurel Fretz , now the principal at Santa Monica High School, continues to wreak havoc on excellent, well-functioning academic programs. She recently placed the popular photography teacher there on administrative leave with no explanation to parents or students, cancelled the world-famous photographers he had lined up to speak to the program, and replaced him with a sub (for two months) who knew nothing about photography. Even as parents and students unanimously clamor for his return, and/or some explanation, the most she has done is bring in a new sub with better skills. We fear the teacher will not be reinstated. The only comment from Fretz and School Superintendent is that personnel matters cannot be discussed.
