Today marks two months since Leesville Road Middle School teacher Patricia Corbino was suspended with pay following a parental complaint about having told her students not wear rosary beads in class.
As noted in today's article, the Wake County school system still hasn't concluded its investigation into Corbino's case. With the case not wrapped up yet, Leesville hired a new sixth-grade science teacher this month to permanently take over Corbino's job instead of having it taught by substitute teachers.
Since Corbino's job at Leesville is gone, she'd have to be assigned somewhere if Wake brings her back.
Corbino said Monday that on the advice of her attorney she can’t discuss the case until it’s resolved. But Corbino said she’s been “humbled” by all the former parents, students and complete strangers who've contacted her to let her know they support her.
