Did UTLA Union President Leave Campus to Campaign?

There is some question whether United Teachers of Los Angeles (UTLA) president Alex Caputo-Pearl left his classroom to campaign for the presidential office.

Howard Blume has the story in the Los Angeles Times.

The interaction between the two sides has gotten more heated in recent days. UTLA accused the school district of trying to smear its president, Alex Caputo-Pearl, by improperly releasing his disciplinary records in response to a public-records request by radio station KPCC. It concerned a 2014 dispute over whether Caputo-Pearl, then a teacher, had improperly left his campus to campaign for the union presidency. The Times wrote about the issue when it first arose.
