Tallahassee Democrat.Do the crime, do the time.In a statement, Carrasquilla said that the school’s board chair, Barney Bishop, had for several weeks been making his displeasure known, “when parents became upset about policies or procedures not being followed to the ‘T.’ “He was more concerned about litigation and appeasing a small minority of parents, rather than trusting my expertise as an educator for more than 25 years.”She says Bishop took her aside last week and gave her an ultimatum.

Resign or be fired.Two of the parents who complained about the art history lesson said they should have been notified in advance.

Last month, the school board passed a motion that parents should receive a warning two weeks in advance of any lessons deemed “potentially controversial”.Parents are also allowed to review the curriculum and any photos to be shown in such classes.Carrasquilla admits parents should have been notified about the lesson.

However, she said a breakdown in communication between herself, the director of operations and the art teacher led to this administrative oversight on this occasion.The school opened in the Fall of 2020 and Carrasquilla was the third principal during that time.
