Gil talks to Dave Garcia, an associate with Laurie Juengert who has been representing the Brentwood Union School District in the case of Dina Holder, the special needs teacher who had kicked a student in a classroom two years ago, and was allowed to keep her job in the district. Garcia explains why the school district had not removed the teacher from the classroom or why she had not been fired for what she did. He faults the state laws for her remaining as an employee.
