South Carolina Special Ed Teacher Punished for Protecting Students

Tracie Happel was a special education teacher in the Oconee County School District in South Carolina until she protested her students having to take a standardized test by sending a letter to school administrators. She was placed on administrative leave, and still has not heard the outcome of her school district’s investigation.  This news first broke in April, check out EAGNews.org’s articles here and here. Last week she recorded a video sharing her story for U.S. Parents Involved in Education.

We need more teachers like Tracie, not less.

  1. This is just not fair and reasonable! There shouldn’t be discrimination like this! Go, Tracie, keep up the good work! We’re with you!
