Riverside CO Teachers Placed on Leave for Mocking Students

Several teachers and a guidance counselor at Jurupa Valley's Rubidoux High have been placed on leave after social media posts derided student particpation in the "Day Without Immigrants" last week. The Press Enterprise has an extensive story, which reports "In the Facebook posts, which have since been deleted, at least six teachers expressed support for having so many kids miss class."

The story has gone national. with the Washington Post "The employees — five teachers and one guidance coordinator — said classes were quieter and grades higher with the students gone. Words such as “lazy,” “drunk” and “failing” were used to describe those who were absent."
