School community not happy about losing friendly faces

Turns out that downtown's decision to remove all the familiar teachers and staff from Miramonte Elementary School and bring in strangers isn't going over well with students and some parents. Can't call that a surprise. Felt like a bureaucrat's decision from the get-go, but maybe LAUSD Supt. John Deasy knows something we don't about that school community.
Things were "tense and emotional" outside the school in Florence-Firestone this morning, the Times found, even though classes have been suspended until Thursday.
