My cousin was denied a teacher's job in Florida because of "exponged" criminal record
Okay, so before you get an opinion of my cousin (and no its not me) he is not a "criminal" or anything near it.
Nice guy, rents, pays bills on time, graduated college, wanted to be a teacher to make a difference.
3 years being a teacher at a local high school and then they tell him he is not being offered another year because he "lied" on his application about a past criminal record.
He has no idea what they are talking about.
He called Florida Law Department and they said they must have looked at his exponged record.
I asked him, have you been charged as a criminal before? He said, not that I can remember. The only thing I can think of it that once I got caught stealing a CD when I was 13 years old!
Does anyone know what he can do about this?
I mis-typed. He was teaching for two years at a high school in south fl then moved to central fl. He taught at the central fl school for a year. Its the central fl school where his contract was up for renewal.
