For the first time in Glendale Unified School District's history, April 24 is no longer a school day. Previously, school remained open on the day that commemorates the genocide of 1.5 million Armenians who were killed by the Ottoman Empire in Turkey. Finally, Glendale Unified has acknowledged the obvious that with such a large Armenian population in the city, educators teaching to half-empty classrooms no longer made sense. Berdj Karapetian, chairman of the Glendale chapter of the Armenian National Committee of America, said he is “pleased” that Glendale schools will be closed, considering a third of its students are of Armenian descent.
