“Parents in San Francisco are rallying around a second-grade teacher with breast cancer who will have to cover the cost of a substitute to replace her while she’s on extended sick leave.
A Glen Park Elementary school teacher, who did not want to be identified, will likely be on leave for the rest of the year, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Tuesday. She could have as much as $240 per day deducted from her salary to pay for a substitute thanks to a 1976 change to the California education code, the newspaper reported.
“I just feel sad that from what I heard, she is a very good teacher and I just feel sad what’s going on to her,” Narciso Flores-Diaz, a parent, told KNTV Wednesday. “Our school is pulling together to help her and to make her feel that she’s not alone.”
