It was time to speak up. When award winning playwright and LAUSD teacher, Alan Aymie, was given his second pink slip from the school district that he had worked for since 1998, and later “graded” by the LA Times, he decided it was time to use his writing to provide a voice for teachers.
“Here I was trying to be a good teacher and the person (my son) who I really need to teach I couldn’t reach,” explains Aymie.
