|Barbara Abeyta, representative,
National City Elementary Teachers Association,
signed the decision as OAH panelist in the Maura
Larkins case. The California attorney general's
office reported to Maura Larkins that Ms. Abeyta,
in serving on the OAH panel, felt an obligation as a
union representative. Clearly, Ms. Abeyta felt no
obligation to honor the rights of a fellow teacher,
only to be loyal to the union.
Questions for Barbara Abeyta
1) Did CTA pressure you to keep quiet?
2) Did Mary Kay Rosinski arrange for CTA
Attorney Emma Lehaney to help you get out of
testifying in the Schulman case?

On Feb 12, 2001, in the middle of their critical
transition year to English-only instruction,
Maura Larkins' students were given a series of
substitutes who knew very little about how to
teach that class.
Judge Ahler claimed that it was perfectly
acceptable that the district took Maura Larkins
out of her classroom for seven weeks, then,
after asking Maura Larkins twice to come back
during that school year, each time demanded
that she leave again.
Judge Ahler had before him evidence that Asst.
Superintendent Rick Werlin was running around
desperately looking for someone who would
make an allegation against Maura Larkins.
Gretchen Donndelinger's notes showed how
hard he tried, and how unsuccessful he was.
Attorney Mark Bresee of Parham & Rajcic
either instructed or advised Werlin to violate
the law again and again, or was willing to accept
taxpayer money for covering up school district
wrongdoing, or both.
James Ahler clearly did not care about Maura
Larkins' students, yet he dishonestly pretended
to care about STUDENTS IN A CLASS AT A

No, I didn't think so. I just wanted to point out that you could, if
you wanted, right the wrong you have committed.
