Dallas elementary school principal, Rudy Mendoza, accused of making racist remarks about black teachers & students, as well as pregnant teachers.
SHAME: A two-and-a-half investigation of Rudy Mendoza, principal at Silberstein Elementary School near Pleasant Grove, Dallas, who was placed on administrative leave after being accused of making racist statements about black teachers and students, as well as about pregnant women, concludes that he violated seven district policies and might have also broken the Equal Opportunity Commission guidelines, as well.
A 43-page report about the investigation probing these allegations, outlines specific findings. According to investigators, Mr. Mendoza:
- made discriminatory remarks to African-American teachers and even his own African-American elementary school students
- created a hostile environment on campus
- made inappropriate comments about pregnancy, allegedly saying, “If you want to get pregnant, this is not the campus for you”
In one sworn affidavit, a teacher claims Mendoza said, “He did not want any pregnant teachers this year because they missed too much school.” “I have no thought whatsoever to make a person feel or even think that — number one, that this is appropriate, or they could get away with it,” said Alliance AFT President Rena Honea. District investigators interviewed 29 teachers and 20 of them remembered the “pregnancy” discussion. Another sworn affidavit said Mendoza told a bilingual teacher “she was too fat and ugly to be a teacher.” Source: WFAA.com
How can you have such a person leading a school? This is unconscionable and I hope this man is never hired to lead a school for the rest of his life. I must applaud the brave individuals who came forward to tell their story about this radical. It should be noted, the report does not say what punishment should be meted to Mendoza. That will be left up to the school district. He should be fired immediately.
