However, several of the 32 teachers being sued say they left St. Louis Public Schools not because it was difficult to teach students, but more because they felt they had no support from administrators.

One teacher said a student punched her in the face and the student faced no discipline from the principal. Another teacher said she faced virtually daily harassment from her principal and coworkers, even after reporting it to district administrators. Another teacher said he saw feces on the walls and rodents in the building where he worked, on top of classrooms crowded with more than 30 students.
This just makes me so angry. This basically makes a teaching contract equivalent to indentured servitude. How many times have we, as teachers, been told to stop complaining; that if we don't like our jobs, we should just quit. Well, that's what these teachers did. They voted with their feet. And instead of fixing the problems that made them leave, the district sues them to discourage other teachers from leaving?

SMH.
