Lovejoy High School coach files discrimination lawsuit
A former basketball coach for Lovejoy High School has now filed a lawsuit against the school district claiming that she was treated differently at work because of her age, race and gender.
The coach stated that she was subjected to comments about her race and was also told to favor the white players. According to the lawsuit, the coach’s job was threatened whenever she objected these requests.
She filed a formal complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and stated that after this was done, she was reassigned to a different teaching position in retaliation. While coaching, her team made it to the State Finals, but she did receive low scores on her performance review.
