Appeals court upholds teacher's firing for using sick days for vacation
The Champaign News-Gazette reports on an appeals court decision that recently upheld a ruling that a Chicago school district could fire a teacher for using sick days for vacation. From the story:
When Dorothy Crawley, a tenured Chicago elementary school teacher, felt like taking a vacation, she didn't let her job get in the way.
So on three occasions in 2015, she called in sick and hit the road. Crawley took a "pre-planned" Caribbean cruise and another trip to Norway. Her Facebook posts documented her travels.
All was fine…
