White Teacher Wins In Discrimination Lawsuit Against School System

Simpson-Marcus became Largo High School’s principal in 2007, at which point Everhart said she called him “poor white trash,” and “white bitch.”

A jury has sided with a white teacher to the tune of $350,000 in a case of discrimination in Prince George’s County, Md.

Jon Everhart, 65, filed a civil lawsuit against Prince George’s County school board based on a history of discrimination. That discrimination led to his termination — and revocation of his teaching certification – in June 2010, The Washington Post reports. Everhart had taught English at Largo High School since 2003. He was named Teacher of the Year and received multiple perfect job performance evaluations from prior Largo High School principals.

The harassment started in 2003 when Angelique Simpson-Marcus, a gym teacher at the time, reportedly told students, “The only reason a white man teaches in P.G. County is that they can’t get a job elsewhere.”
