Welcome to the Plaintiff Blues Blog. I spent 34 years in public education as a teacher and administrator. I spent 15 of those years as a plaintiff in two federal lawsuits due to job discrimination and retaliation. I wrote Plaintiff Blues to describe those experiences, to encourage others to stand up - but with eyes wide open! My posts explore common sense in public education, social justice, civil rights, civil liberties, and other constitutional issues. Check out www.plaintiffblues.com.
