The states highest court has ruled Lowell school officials cant fire a teacher who failed two English fluency tests.
The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court said a lower court could not overturn an arbitrators decision in favor of the teacher, Phanna Kem Robishaw.
Robishaw began teaching in the Lowell public schools in 1992 after fleeing the Khmer Rouge regime. She was one of five teachers at her school of Cambodian birth, where nearly half the student population was Cambodian....
....Robishaw had four state teaching licenses but failed the English tests in part, she said, because she was suffering from post-traumatic stress.

A:Never should have been hired in the first place but B:making everyone pay for that mistake is just plain stupid.
For all you non-Gay Staters,Lowell is a particularly filthy and repugnant city...the kind of hell-hole one would expect to find in a People’s Republic like ours.A glittering monument to “progressivism”.
That town sure seems to be in the news a lot. Not many positive things though.
If the INS were to do a sweep through the city its population would decrease by 80% overnight...if you catch my drift.And Kennedy,Kerry,Hussein & Friends routinely carry the city with 90% of the vote.
I'll wager that you have a pretty good idea what Lowell is all about *now*! ;-)
For the grammer police on this board; From now on when i mess up my grammer or speling I will uset the post tramatic stress excuse. I was scared stupid once myself.
I’d say this was outrageous but then again, 90% of the people who live in this Liberal Hellhole probably vote for the most Communist candidates for state and local elections so they deserve what they get. Anyone with even a little common sense should have left a long time ago.
I wish I had come up with the PTSD excuse for poor grammar years ago. I’m near 70 now and realize how much I could have used that excuse earlier in life. Like my Mom used to say, “Day late, dollar short.”
