You would not know about the pregnancy-hating principal at Scammon if those courageous teachers had not filed a suit.
As in deals such as this, CPS admits no guilt.
The EEOC says they are guilty as hell.
They will pay a quarter of a million in back pay and damages.
Who knew Clayfool had that much money laying around?
The person in charge is Scammon Principal Mary Weaver.
“A lose cannon,” those who know her, tell me.
CPS not having to admit guilt is a legal issue. CPS, which claims to be broke, paying out a quarter mil is another. Innocents don’t do that.
“That a public school engaged in a pattern of firing teachers because of their pregnancies is dismaying to say the least,” said Director Julianne Bowman of EEOC’s Chicago District in a statement. “This settlement puts in place meaningful measures to eradicate the kind of antiquated thinking that resulted in the loss of these dedicated female educators from Scammon Elementary School.”
“Today, the Chicago Board of Education takes an important step toward ensuring that no woman loses her job, faces discipline or endures threats because of her pregnancy,” said Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Vanita Gupta, head of the Civil Rights Division. “Our settlement establishes critical measures to provide a workplace environment free from sex-based discrimination.”
As long as Weaver is principal at Scammon I would not be as hopeful as Gupta.
