Teacher, 80, Fired Over Bathroom Dispute

NEW YORK, Aug. 3 (UPI) — An 80-year-old New York City kindergarten teacher said she was fired for complaining about the long walk her class had to take to use the bathroom.

Lillie Leon detailed in a suit filed in Manhattan that every time one of her kindergarten students needed to go to the bathroom, she had to take the entire class along, the New York Daily News reported Wednesday.

The grandmother of four, who has taught for 34 years, asked that she be reassigned to a first-grade class since first-graders didn’t require supervision on bathroom breaks.

Instead, she was notified last week that she had lost her job at Public School 117 in Queens.

Leon filed suit in Manhattan Supreme Court seeking to return to work for one more year before retiring.

She also has a suit pending against the city in federal court.
