DISD Teachers Boycott Summer School
DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Two Dallas Independent School District sources told CBS 11 that their Communications Chief, Rebecca Rodriguez, resigned Monday.
But the school district will neither confirm nor deny whether Rodriguez, the first Hispanic woman to lead the district’s Communications Department, resigned. If she has left, Rodriguez is the third Mike Miles cabinet member to leave their post within the past week.
Other acts of defiance are on-going as well…
Some teachers are making a statement against their superintendent by deciding not to teach summer school.
Teacher association leader Angela Davis said hundreds have decided to essentially boycott summer school teaching.
“Right now the biggest concern is our Superintendent Mike Miles,” she said. “They are tired of the policies that he has put in place, and they’ve decided the money they’re making isn’t worth it.”
DISD said there’s a teacher shortage for the summer and they’re working to fill the void. But the district won’t comment on what may be triggering the teacher shortage.
Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings weighed in, using Monday as a day to voice public support for DISD.
“We as a city support the efforts for every one of our students,” said Rawlings.
