BREAKING NEWS: Khalil Gibran principal resigns

The New York Times is reporting right now that Debbie Almontaser, the founding principal of the Khalil Gibran International Academy, has resigned. Her resignation comes after a week of intense criticism over her will and desire to maintain the school's political neutrality.

Without Almontaser, it's unclear whether the school will open as planned next month. "An immediate replacement was not announced, and Ms. Almontaser’s abrupt exit left the future of the school in question," the Times reports. The Post reports that of the 60 kids who are signed up to be part of the school's first class, only six speak Arabic.

I really hope the school can survive.
