If you would like to get involved in something that Superintendent John Deasy, and LAUSD cannot ignore with impunity, do yourself and your colleagues a favor and fill out the form below.
Last night I had a meeting with a lawyer who is connected to one of the biggest law firms in L.A. They are very interested in going after LAUSD for age and maybe even disability discrimination in a major class action law suit. What they are looking for are teachers who are or were at the top of the salary scale and/or about to vest in lifetime health benefits - that is older- who were forced out of teaching. You don't have to be aged to qualify, just old enough to be or have been removed from teaching because of your age/salary, even though LAUSD never mentioned age when they hit you with bogus charges designed to build a case to dismiss you or get you to resign or retire.
The law firm wants a core group of 10-15 to start out with. I have many more than that in my database, but would like to go in with 10 times the number they are asking for to show them just how egregious this LAUSD witch hunt against teachers is. Feel free to put this out to anybody you know that might be able to add to the numbers. Those who have most recently been targeted and removed are of course best, but it doesn't hurt anybody who has been targeted to fill out the form below and get it back to me ASAP.
