South Carolina’s State newspaper reported on April 18, 2007 that a former North Charleston middle school teacher who claimed she had worked in a racially hostile environment and was verbally abused settled her lawsuit for $200,000.
The teacher, Elizabeth Kandrac, worked at Brentwood Middle School in North Charleston for less than a year. Ms. Kandrac, a white teacher who worked at the predominately black school, claimed that the school staff never took her complaints seriously. She left the school when her bike tires were slashed.
