Sand Diego teacher Carie Charlesworth had been teaching at the Holy Trinity for 14-years before being fired for her job.
Although I understand the concerns the school and parents have, firing a single mother was not the answer.
“…Charlesworth’s ex-husband came to the school parking lot in defiance of a temporary restraining order; as a result, the school was placed on lockdown and Charlesworth and her children were asked to leave.”
Three months later she was terminated from her teaching job. Administrators at Holy Trinity explain:
“We know from the most recent incident involving you and [principal] Mrs. Wright while you were still physically at Holy Trinity School, that the temporary restraining order in effect were not a deterrent to him. Although we understand he is currently incarcerated, we have no way of knowing how long or short a time he will actually serve and we understand from court files that he may be released as early as next fall. In the interest of the safety of the students, faculty and parents at Holy Trinity School, we simply cannot allow you to return to work there, or, unfortunately, at any other school in the Diocese.”
This doesn’t make it any easier for women who are trapped in domestic violence. I understand that parents want to protect their kids, but this was taken too far.
