Superintendent of Sikeston schools Tom Williams said on May 14 a third-party investigator found the claims some Sikeston teachers made that they were harassed by the school district because of their common core beliefs were deemed unfounded.
He says the investigator found that the school had no violation of law or board policy.
The school’s compliance officer read the claims and the findings at Tuesday night’s board meetings.
The investigation was conducted by outside investigators.
Teachers had made several allegations, including claims that they were denied personal says because they were going to speak to the state legislature against common core and also that they were directed not to speak negatively about common core. All of those allegations were deemed unfounded.Teachers in the Sikeston school district spoke out against a new set of teaching practices, known as Common Core.
