The City's Denial
March 12th, 2010

The city law department has responded to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission determination that the Department of Education discriminated against Debbie Almontaser (see below), the former interim principal of Khalil Gibran International Academy — and the city is not budging an inch.

The e-mailed statement by Paul Marks, deputy chief of labor and employment law, reads in full: “The EEOC’s finding is without any basis whatsoever. The DOE in no way discriminated against Ms. Almontaser and she will not be re-instated. If she continues to pursue litigation, we will vigorously defend against her groundless allegations.”
