Fired for teaching about Trayvon: Re-hire Brook Harris at Pontiac School of Excellence

Signatures to be Delivered to School Board

Petitions with 200,000 signatures gathered by a national Internet group are to be presented to the board of the Pontiac Academy of Excellence Tuesday demanding the reinstatement of a teacher fired following a disagreement with administration over the request to do a “Hoodie Day” in honor of Trayvon Martin.
The petition was started on Change.org by Teaching Tolerance, a project of the Southern Poverty Law Center, a nonprofit civil rights organization
