Longtime Jupiter teacher suing school board

JUPITER, FL (WFLX) - A longtime Jupiter Middle School teacher is suing the Palm Beach County School Board.

Our news partners at the Palm Beach Post report Irma Dixon says she was reassigned from her longtime specialty because she is black.

In the lawsuit, Dixon claims she was asked to teach intensive math for the 2012-2013 school year; despite the fact, she has taught business education for the last 20 years.
