She doesn't want to fight it. I can't allow this to go unexposed.

The written threat of a law suit may fix it. Verbal threats have no weight. A complaint to the EEOC may help.

She may not want you to fight this battle because she is not a fighter. Sometimes we have to fight for those unable to fight for themselves.

The very position from which Mrs. McCool was surplused was recently posted soliciting applications. Mrs. McCool applied and interviewed. Despite Mrs. McCool's entitlement, qualifications, and experience, the position was awarded to an unqualified, inexperienced candidate.


A prerequisite for the position is an associate's degree, 60 college credit hours, or successful completion of the WorkKeys exam. Mrs. McCool possesses associates, bachelor's, and master's degrees, has passed the WorkKeys AND Praxis exams, and has experience in the position. The candidate awarded the position has no post-secondary education, has not passed the required exam, and has no paraprofessional experience (with the exception of occasional substitution.)


Private sector employee selection allows for discretion. This is a public school.


I appealed the employee selection to the school board superintendent. (Mr. McCool can be perceived as intimidating.) My wife does not want me to fight this battle for her. BUT I CAN'T STOP! Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.


What do I do?
Injustice is not McCool at all! You have no choice. Fight on!!

Spot on.
Both women substitute at the school and have the same network of friends and coworkers. My wife fears that if she wins the appeal, the other woman loses. Everyone knows how much she needs the job and Mrs. McCool will appear to have taken it from her. She is afraid she will be hated and shunned at work.

The American Public School system is a tool of the Left. If you are seeking fairness in employment leave it to the Bureaucrats and move on.

I was firm with the superintendent and demanded an internal investigation. My wife noticed it was in the works at the school today.

Correct. If it is not resolved before the next board meeting, I may video the debate.

This is the simple truth given the facts we have in the thread. Your wife is not taking a job from the other woman,. She is taking back a job that was taken from her.

The school board's investigation started today. They questioned the woman's qualification. She is scheduled to assume the position October 1st. It is impossible for her to earn a degree or achieve 60 college credit hours before then. The administration has her scrambling to pass the required exam prior to the first. I doubt she has the money to pay for the test. We paid for her substitute license this year.

Make her want a better job
