A teacher at a Dallas charter school brought a lawsuit against her employer alleging race discrimination. The teacher participated in the Principal Certification Program. Once she started, the school found she was unable to keep up with both the program and her teaching duties. After several performance issues, the teacher was eventually reclassified with a lower salary. She was then written up for failure to follow a supervisor’s directive, failure to follow policy and failure to maintain a professional level of conduct in the workplace. The teacher claimed she was written up due to racial discrimination and not performance related issues. The case settled for a nominal amount but defense costs were more than $10,000.
