Two teachers have filed a lawsuit against Columbus City Schools, claiming they were discriminated against because they are white.
The focus of the lawsuit is Toia Robinson who oversees gifted education. Amy Dennis, who directs special-education and gifted programs is also named in documents.
The suit, filed in federal court, also names the Columbus Board of Education, district workers who investigate employee complaints and top level administrators, including Superintendent Gene Harris.

According to The Columbus Dispatch, the lawsuit says that Robinson retaliated against Elizabeth Gasior and Juli Knecht for speaking out about their concerns about the gifted program and Robinson’s treatment of employees.
Court documents allege that Robinson created a “hostile, abusive and intimidating work environment.”
