A middle school teacher says she lost her job at a Pontiac, Mich. charter school because she helped students organize a fundraiser for the family of
slain Florida teenager Trayvon Martin.
The firing of Brooke Harris, an English and journalism teacher at Pontiac Academy for Excellence Middle School garnered national attention.
First, regardless of the number of signatures an organization gets it does not in turn require that the school honor it
The woman wants to know why she was fired...
I can put it simply.
You are not to my knowledge allowed to organize political or other causes during school hours. The superintendent gave the order clearly.
also feels like some things are being left out
The only possibility of wrong doing is not having a member of the school teachers enforcers present (union)... I have worked with them and insisted
every time I handled an issue they where present. I made the shop steward tell me to just write it up and have two witnesses... I was covering my rear
on this... although annoyed it did protect me, i see no mention of it in the article...
Also I note slight bias of the media... the schools story is lacking here...
