Discrimination lawsuit filed against Turkish-run charter school
by Martha Woodall
A former English teacher at Truebright Science Academy Charter School has filed a civil rights suit alleging the Turkish-run charter discriminated against employees based on gender and national origin.
Regenna A. Jalon, who worked at the North Philadelphia school for four years, said in a complaint filed in U.S. District Court in late February that the school engaged in a pattern of hiring, promoting and paying less-qualified Turkish nationals more than American-born educators who were certified and had more experience.
A Truebright attorney said the school denied any wrongdoing when the suit surfaced during a hearing Thursday on the charter school's renewal.
