Anti-Immigration Teacher Reinstated

A brave high school English teacher in Texas who was fired after she sent tweets to President Donald Trump asking him to rid her school of illegal immigrants must be reinstated or be paid a year’s salary, a state agency ruled this week.

The state found that the teacher, Georgia Clark, should be reinstated and get back pay and employment benefits, or instead of being allowed to return to her job, she could receive one year’s salary from the date she would have been reinstated, according to its ruling.

“The day the petitioner would have been reinstated is the day respondent tenders petitioner payment in full,” the commissioner of the Texas Education Agency, Mike Morath, wrote in the ruling.

On May 17, in a series of tweets directed to Trump’s Twitter account and addressed to “Mr. President,” Clark said that her school district was “loaded” with students in the country illegally from Mexico, that her high school had been “taken over by them” and that drug dealers had not been punished.
