Teachers and advocates for public education and students will be speaking out about the violation of the California Education Code by the Commission on Teacher Credentials, a California Agency
run by the Brown administration.
The Commission which was forced to have an State Joint Legislative audit because of massive violations of the education cod and because of a backlog of credential applications is supposed to be in charge of the oversight of physical abuse of students in California schools and accountability of the staff. In the case of SF UESF principal Natalie Eberhard of the Martin Luther King Middle School in San Francisco, they prevented material witnesses who saw the physical abuse by the principal of a special ed African American student at the school from testifying at the Commission hearings.
As a result of this bullying and physical abuse by Eberhard, complaints were filed against her and the Assistant
principal Anthony Braxton who forged and falsified documentation about the incident in February 2012. In order to cover up the bullying Eberhard and Braxton had a campaign of terror and bullying of teachers and staff driving 17 education workers from the school.
In an open and flagrant violation of the California Education code the Commission attorneys have prevented public comment during the hearing on Jan 22 and have told material witnesses that they are not able to present evidence. They nows say there can be public comment on the last day of the hearing when a decision will already may have been made to let Eberhard off the hook.
This commission staff have also refused to investigate this incident including interviewing the material witnesses who filed complaints with the Commission.
There will be a press conference at 1:30 PM to let the public know about the serious nature of these issues and to demand accountability.
Governor Brown's administration is in charge of this Commission and is aware of the serious systemic
problems at this agency as well as State Senator Darrell Steinberg and Kamala Harris, Attorney General of California where there is a legal case concerning systemic violations of the education code by this same State Commission which Governor Brown is in charge of.
