Hamway Case: Documents Part I

Posted By on Thu, Sep 27, 2012 at 10:00 AM

For the past month, Weekly World Central has followed and covered the Rose Hamway case, reporting on the former Tucson Unified School District school psychologist and whistleblower who filed a retaliation complaint against TUSD. Last month, the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights released it's findings that sided with Hamway and TUSD agreed to settle the case for $180,000.

There are 14 students Hamway tried to help before and after she was fired from TUSD. Those families filed their own discrimination complaints to OCR with Hamway's help. Although a resolution agreement between OCR and TUSD was signed last year, some parents have slowly come forward and shared that they are still waiting to receive the kind of help their students need. This week's paper features an interview with the first parent to come forward — Kathy Winslow Richmond about her son, Brian Richmond — recently contacted by OCR to find out why were issues remain unresolved.

We continue to get documents every week regarding this case, and wanted you to have chance to see documents we are able to share to help you better understand the case, the parents complaints and the OCR process. We promise to post additional documents this month as we received them.
