A former teacher at the Kentucky School for the Deaf has filed a whistleblower lawsuit, alleging that her contract was not renewed after she spoke out about problems at the residential school in Danville, including danger to students.

The lawsuit was filed in August in Franklin Circuit Court by Deanna Glasser against principal Toyah Robey, Kentucky Education Commissioner Wayne Lewis, who under state law is the superintendent at the school, and the Kentucky Board of Education. Kentucky’s Whistleblower Act prohibits retaliation or discrimination against an employee who reports in good faith to appropriate authorities about suspected abuse or violations of law.

The lawsuit is among the recent examples of people voicing complaints about the public school which was founded in 1823.
