(Washington Examiner) — Officials inside the District of Columbia’s labor relations board said they expect that D.C. Public Schools will be told to rehire the 75 teachers who were fired from D.C. Public Schools in 2008 when the panel reviews the schools’ appeal on Wednesday. The Public Employee Relations Board is likely to review on Wednesday an appeal from D.C. Public Schools that it should not have to reinstate and pay $7.5 million in back wages to probationary teachers fired in 2008, as required by an arbitrator. ”It’s pretty rare — only 10 percent of the time do they approve these requests,” said an official within the labor relations office who was not authorized to speak on the record. “For instance, maybe if there was a change in the law while the arbitrator was making his decision.”
