Adventures in cowardice:
A San Diego domestic abuse victim is now out of a job after she was fired following a “domestic violence dispute” with her ex-husband.
NBC San Diego reports that Carie Charlesworth, a second-grade teacher at Holy Trinity School, was placed on indefinite leave and then let go because school officials feared her ex could put students and other staff in danger.
After a domestic violence incident in January, Charlesworth’s ex showed up outside the school, which was put on lockdown, the station reports. Charlesworth was “put on indefinite leave” according to a message sent to students and staff after the incident. She was officially fired in April. Her four children, who were students at the school, have also been forbidden from returning.
This is just wrong.
