Victor Elementary School District Distinguished Schools?

Retaliate Against A Teacher?

Disgusting, but not surprising, is the fact that the teacher who was retaliated against, was a former teacher at Lomitas Elementary and had previously filed other complaints against the school on charges of racism and discrimination against students with severe special needs!
