Standing Up to Goliath and Winning
We all know the story of Rebecca Friedrichs, whose case against forced dues traveled all the way to the Supreme Court, and how the untimely death of Justice Antonin Scalia brought the case to a close. Rebecca’s group, For Kids and Country, soldiers on, helping a teacher wrongly accused by his teacher union. Dr. Susan Berry has the story on breitbart.com.
The St. Paul, Minnesota, school district has agreed to pay $525,000 to a former teacher who said he was retaliated against because he openly criticized the district for failing black students with its lax discipline policies that did not hold them accountable for disruptive behavior.
Aaron Benner, 50, currently an administrator at Cretin-Derham Hall in St. Paul, filed a federal lawsuit in 2017, arguing the district retaliated against him by investigating him four times during the 2014-2015 school year, reported the Star Tribune.
