From WSB-TV News:
ATLANTA —A group of teachers at a metro Atlanta school want their principal removed before the start of the school year because of bullying.
Current and former teachers at Canby Lane Elementary School in Decatur say their principal, Anita Stokes-Brown, uses intimidation tactics and created a hostile work environment that affects their ability to teach.
“Anytime a person feels intimidated and feels threatened in any kind of way, they’re being bullied, and that’s what we feel,” first-grade teacher Marva Cason said.
Cason told Channel 2’s Amy Napier Viteri that she and other teachers crafted a petition asking the district to remove Stokes-Brown.
The letter claims, “Stokes-Brown has treated us with great disrespect, demoralized and criticized us.”
Cason said Stokes-Brown’s treatment of teachers has left them stressed.
“Talking to us in a demeaning manner, just treating us like we’re inhuman. Some of the teachers I’ve seen cry,” she said.
