20. Here is the Colorado Law
What angers me is that the Jeffco School District administration has become so gutless that they won't even stand up for one of their own teachers.

Please note the 'bolded' section of the statute. The school administation has a legal leg to stand on! Why did the superintendent let this teacher be suspended?

Another example that 'government' is not a friend these days to progressives, liberals and genuinely patriotic Americans.

Colorado Revised Statutes
