The Dallas fourth grade teacher suspended because of an email sent to a school board member will be back in class Wednesday.
Joseph Drake sent an email to Board Member Edwin Flores expressing anger over the Board’s vote to lengthen the teacher workday by 45 “unpaid” minutes. Dr. Flores forwarded the email to administrators who put Drake on paid leave for “alleged misconduct.”
Rena Honea is president of the largest Dallas teacher-group, the Alliance-AFT. She’s pleased with Drake’s reinstatement.
