    San Diego Domestic Violence Victim Fired From Teaching

    Second grade teacher Carie Charlesworth was fired after a domestic violence dispute involving her ex-husband

    A San Diego teacher was fired by Holy Trinity School following a domestic violence incident involving her ex-husband.

    Second-grade teacher Carie Charlesworth is out of a job, but not for anything she did in the classroom. Her school district considers her a liability and too unsafe to have around following a domestic violence dispute that happened earlier this year.

    This is a no win situation and they put the kids first. You can't blame the ENTIRE Catholic Church for the actions of a school in San Diego.

    Something similar happened to my piece of shit brother in law. He is a Principal at a High School and was pulled over for running a red light at 2am after leaving a bar with his stripper girlfriend. Police did a field sobriety test and determined he was 2 times over the legal limit. My sister in law had to find a babysitter at 4am in the morning to go bail his ass out of jail. Long story short, he lost his job as he should have. He is supposed to be a role model for the teens at his school. He gives lectures about the importance of not drinking and driving and then goes and gets caught doing it.

    The BOE did give him a chance to keep his job if he completed certain speaking engagements to MADD and SADD but he never did it.

    It sucks for the woman to lose her job, but the school's number one priority, and you would think recent events would make this even more evident, is the protection of the children.

    If the school has a legitimate concern that her husband is a threat to her and the students there, I think they are well within their rights to terminate her.

    I am no fan of how the Catholic Church at large has administered itself for say, oh, the last thousand years, but based upon what I have read so far, I don't think this is anything to get up in arms over.

    particuarly since this was a decision made by principal of the school and not by the Catholic Church itself. It wasn't like the Pope signed off on this.

    You know what cracks me up? Every time something happens that has a Catholic component to it, its ALWAYS the "Catholic Church". A teacher got fired from her job. Happens everyday to thousands of people. Its sad when that happens but let's not let an opportunity pass to get in a shot at the Catholic Church! Have to make that quota. Love the title of this thread.

    I know the thread-title (understandably) rankles with our Catholic contingent - but I think Voivod's primary motivation was probably to make use of the pun on, "classy", (you know, with the topic being a 'classroom' teacher..!?)

    I think you're giving him too much credit.

    Do you think???

    Truly, it was the first thing that occurred to me! But maybe that's because "staying classy" isn't an expression we use very much, I dunno...

    This is a really tough case... yes, the children's safety must come first...but they are punishing the victim, which is often the case in domestic violence issues. They should have put her on leave until a viable solution could be reached.

    It sounds like that was the original move (she's being paid through august).

    It would be nice if we just put abusive husbands in jail for life then we wouldn't have these issues.

    This thread is no good without Wruff Ajax.
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.
