Shannon Blick is suing her school district for $5 million after claiming she was fired because a black person took her job in Ann Arbor Public Schools.
Shannon Blick, who once headed Lawton Elementary School, has filed a $5 million lawsuit accusing the Ann Arbor Public Schools discrimination, local outlet WDIV-TV reported. The district, its school board and at least six administrators are named as defendants.
Typical bogus claim: “A recently filed complaint in U.S. District Court says 39-year-old Shannon Blick served as principal at Lawton Elementary School in Ann Arbor since 2013, but was stripped of her duties in part because a black person wanted her job.”https://t.co/FsxSQwyojr

The suit further claims Blick, 39, was forced to go on paid administrative leave in late April before being stripped of her duties in Ann Arbor Public Schools and banned from attending any events on campus — including her child’s recent fifth-grade graduation. Blick said she was even barred from attending a public school board meeting without explanation.
The lawsuit adds that the district has a history of “harboring, and acting on, racial animus towards Caucasians and non-minority individuals.”

After being placed on leave, Ann Arbor Public Schools administrators allegedly instructed Blick not to contact any students, parents or staff about the matter and was threatened with discipline or firing if she violated this demand. The suit also claims that when a group of parents planned to speak on her behalf at an Ann Arbor Public Schools board meeting, Blick was told to make sure they didn’t.
