Napping Perkins teacher gets another chance with court case

A 74-year-old woman who lost her teaching job for allegedly sleeping in class will have another shot to appeal her discrimination lawsuit against Perkins Schools.

The school district's administrators fired Carol Smith in 2010, after she was suspended three times — once for missing two classes, a second time for repeatedly sleeping in class, and a third time for using Playgirl Magazine as an example of yellow journalism during a class discussion.

All these dead Rottweiler articles, two on gays, vigilante justice with a gun in Sandusky and now a napping Perkins teacher! Online advertisement just got a lot more expensive! Hey Matt, how long until an Andy Dunn retrospective?

That is why this "newspaper" is really just a tabloid....some say the press uncovers truths but I think a local blogger or someone should investigate the Register, and see how many lies or falsifications they could find.

This is just another example of how public employees cannot get fired.

Our legal system is so screwed up. Wait, they are public employees too. Now I understand!

In the private sector the sleeping is called "stealing time" and is cause for immediate dismissal. Couldn't agree more with your statement.

Why can't everyone stick to the issue here and quit attacking what a person looks like? So you don't like her glasses. Too bad. You're not the one that has to wear them. Quit acting like 5 year olds.

Is that a recent photo? It looks about 20 years old.

At least those glasses aren't the stupid rectangle ones with the wide temple pieces that everyone HAS to wear nowadays. It's as if they are the only ones they know how to make.

Cheeeeeeese

I have to agree with you. These comments are uncalled for.....sorry, I fell off my chair when I read Perkins2060 blog. Totally uncalled for. But funny.
