JUSTICE: a second teacher, Catlin Preston, finally fully exonerated after Principal Garg's spurious charges

JUSTICE: a second teacher, Catlin Preston, finally fully exonerated after Principal Garg's spurious charges. He has spent more than a year in the rubber room. Do I need to remind anyone of the rarity of a decision like this? The chance of both teachers being cleared was 0.16%!!!... Anika Baxter Tam
Not much to say on my part --- Catlin has been in the rubber room for almost a year and a half. At this Saturday's MORE event Marilyn is scheduled to speak. If Catlin comes too, that will be one big celebration. Sorry I have other commitments that day but I look forward to reports. Let's see if there are press reports that are accurate. 

Here's another parent post:
On Jan 31st [2016] vet tenured staff at #cpe1 wrote an open letter to our community about the inability of the current principal had in engaging in conversation about the progressive practices of our school. This shook the community as decisions were being made counter to the democratic, child centered practices that have given the school international acknowledgment. Now, 16 months later, two of these teachers being removed, a petition signed by 3K people, parent ban letters, media, complaints filed. Now we can say -- (1) both our teachers had their charges dismissed, (2) the principal was removed and (3) we get to rebuild! May the CPE1 legacy live on! #thisiswhatdemocracylookslike #parentvoice #teachervoice #savecpe1 #parentsingargout #standupforpublicschools #bringbackourteacher #saveprogressiveeducation
