Kathleen Carroll was a former lawyer at the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing CTC who blew the whistle on the backlog of thousands of credentials that were being improperly withheld from teachers. She also exposed corruption and nepotism in the agency. She went to Senator Darrell Steinberg for a state audit and she charges she was fired by the Commission management in retaliation. A California State Audit confirmed the backlog and also the nepotism, favoritism and workplace bullying by the management. The trial is now taking place in Sacramento Superior Court and her lawyer Dan Siegel was interviewed on August 1, 2016 about the witnesses, retaliation including workplace bullying and what happens to whistleblowers who try to protect the public and teachers. One of the defense witnesses was Barbara Kilponen who was the vice chair of CTC and a president of the Fullerton Joint Union High School District Board. The State Attorneys claimed that Kathleen Carroll had sexually harassed Kilponen. CTC managers hired a "independent" unlicensed investigator Elizabeth Ison to investigate the backlog and her first question to Kilponen was about Carroll being the "stalker". California Attorney General Kamala Harris and her lawyers are conducting the case against Kathleen Carroll and Governor Brown is in charge of the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing CTC through the appointment of commissioners. They have spent millions of dollars of state funds working to prevent the case from even coming to trial.
Interview was done by Steve Zeltzer of KPFA Pacifica WorkWeek Radio.
