Teacher Ruling Draws Protests
May 10, 1942

Despite the protests of a group of approximately 50 citizens, the board of trustees of Lassen Union High School Wednesday night passed a resolution upholding their former action in connection with the dismissal of Mrs. Alta Jensen, home economics instructor.

The board’s resolution climaxed more than a week of debate over terms of a board ruling against hiring of married teachers.

Written protests were filed with the board from three Susanville organizations in the Jensen case, in view of the fact that the teacher’s husband is to be called into the armed forces in the near future.

Backing up their protests through representation at the meeting, the organizations argued that the anti-marriage rule should be abolished under war conditions.
