Resignation of Valeria Silva, Office of the Superintendent

To be delivered to The Minnesota State House, The Minnesota State Senate, and Governor Mark Dayton

Petition Statement

Request and support the resignation of Valeria Silva from her position of Superintendent of St Paul Schools, due to a rapidly downward spiral of the state of public schools and an increase in violence to students and teachers.
There are currently 2,663 signatures. NEW goal - We need 3,000 signatures!

Petition Background

This petition has been started because the current incumbent Valeria Silva has constantly demonstrated her inability to drive improvements in local St Paul schools. Her inability to make changes to benefit the teachers and students include, but are not limited to, rapid increase in violence towards students and teachers; the lack of support for teachers; the removal of disciplinary actions for violent students, and the lack of transparency between her and protagonists such as Rashad Turner.
The teachers and students of public schools in St. Paul, Minnesota require a new leader, someone that will uphold the need for discipline within schools. St. Paul needs a leader that can directly empower teachers to do what they are best at and to foster a safe environment within our schools. The position that Silva currently occupies requires someone that can stand up to those who want to disrupt schools by illegal protests, and fosters respect for the teaching institution.
