19 seconds of Jew-bashing gets Patricia McAllister terminated from LAUSD.
We here at Mayor Sam chanced upon this video of now ex. LAUSD substitute teacher Patricia McAllister on Saturday and posted it on the blog at that time.
Two work days later, McAllister was let go by LAUSD Supt. John Deasy as reported in the Los Angeles Times.
Deasy, in a statement released Tuesday, acknowledged that McAllister was offering her "private opinions" and said the district recognizes "the law is very protective of the freedom of speech rights of public employees when they are speaking as private citizens during non-working time."
However, Deasy said McAllister, as a day-to-day substitute teacher, was an at-will employee, and as of Tuesday she was no longer employed by the district.
Deasy said that district officials would "never stand for behavior that is disrespectful, intolerant or discriminatory."
