Bring Back Mrs. Arthur

17,788 Signatures Goal: 1,000

UPDATE MARCH 3

It has come to our attention that interim superintendent David Eubanks has dismissed the petition as "insignificant".


Also he has said that he has seen evidence that suggest Mrs Arthur routinely allowed students to use her phone. "evidence indicates that students routinely used the teacher’s cell phone with full her permission". This is absolutely false. The evidence that he is speaking of comes from a statement that was made by a fellow student, which the school revised in their statement. The student said he used the phone only once, strictly to order parts for a project, parts that she paid for out of her pocket. Superintendent Eubanks is attempting to dis-credit Mrs Arthur by saying the students "routinely" used her phone, with full permission.


As far as the petition being "insignificant" we would have to disagree, this petition is the voice of the people, it has garnered a great deal of attention. At this point 8,000 individuals have taken the time to sign it, near and far.


We would like to stress that the student is under investigation by authorities and will face consequences for his actions. He has expressed nothing but sincere remorse for his actions, we ask that you do not show hatred towards him, he realizes that what he did was wrong. We are not defending his actions by any means, but some of the things that have been said are utterly hateful, we must keep in mind that this is a fellow classmate who still has a life to live and will remember this for the remainder of his life.


Again we strongly urge you to sign and share this petition, show the superintendent that we are not insignificant!

UPDATE MARCH 2

First and foremost we would like to thank everyone who has signed and shared our petition, never did we think that it would get so much attention. The ultimate goal of the petition is to get Mrs. Arthur reinstated, though we realize that is unlikely to happen.

The students who are involved in the incident are under investigation. Another thing that you have to realize is that we have went to school with the student responsible for years, the intention of the petition is not to have him absolutely berated, but to have Mrs. Arthur reinstated, everyone makes mistakes.

We understand that it will be a while before any decisions are made because the situation has to be thoroughly examined and understood by authorities and the school.

Again, we appreciate your support and strongly urge you to sign and share this petition.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Leigh Anne Arthur is the victim of a blatant attack of her privacy. Personal photographs were illegally obtained by a student and were sent to other students in the school(Union County High). After being escorted off of school property, we (the students) are left to believe that she has been forced to, or given little choice but to resign. Mrs.Arthur has not only shown tremendous dedication to her students, but also the mechatronics program itself, often reaching out to local businesses and colleges to get materials that would not normally be available for the class.

With that being said, the student(s) responsible have not received any sort of punishment. The circumstances in which Mrs.Arthur was let go is unacceptable, and must be corrected. We strongly urge you to sign and share this petition.



Sincerely,

Jacob Barnett

And many more students who just want their teacher back

    Really? This is considered insignificant? The superintendent should resign... voluntarily.

    I think it's disgraceful how the school handled this. Whomever stole the phone should be arrested and Mrs. Arthur should be given her job back or she should sue the school.

    Theft and dissemination of private photos are crimes. The student must be held accountable. This was a deliberate attack and cannot be overlooked.
