An honest-to-goodness suit by a teacher against Michelle Rhee et al

Here is an article about the lawsuit, which apparently was filed in 2007/8.

The first few paragraphs:

A special education teacher who says he was fired for blowing the whistle on his school’s practice of tampering with test scores survived the city’s motion to dismiss.

Bruno Mpoy sued the District of Columbia for allegedly firing him from his position at Ludlow Elementary School after he reported to former D.C. Public Schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee that his principal “instructed teachers [there], including [plaintiff], to change and falsify student records, to alter test scores on standardized assessments, and to fabricate levels of student achievement.

Mpoy also sued Rhee, former D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty and The New Teacher Project, which the educator claims cut off his tuition assistance when he lost his job.

U.S. District Judge James Boasberg ruled that nearly all of Mpoy’s claims survived the motion to dismiss, with the exception being his claim against The New Teacher Project.

  1. The Council is holding an Education roundtable discussion on Friday July 13, 2012 at 1:00. Stakeholders should contact Erika Wadlington to register.


  2. Think the Post will even cover this?


    • No! Michelle is the darling creation of the Post editorial board and they have been in the forefront of union busting for nearly 40 years.
