Union cancels mock Gist funeral

Gist had surgery for brain tumor in September …

The apology

The pawns 

The heart and soul of education reform 

A planned effort to hold a ” mock funeral ” for Education Commish Deb Gist has been cancelled after a talk radio explosion on the John DePetro show. DePetro blasted the union and students for two hours after receiving word they had planned a mock funeral and candlelight vigil to celebrate ” the death” of Deb Gist. DePetro reminded listeners Gist was diagnosed with a brain tumor last July and had the tumor removed in September.  Student organizers quickly backed down and issued an apology within 2 hours of DePetro show. The battle goes on.
