I posted back in June about Yves Magloe's firing, and mentioned in early July -- prematurely, as it turned out -- that he had been reinstated. The first link should give you background on the case. After that July post, I was told very firmly that I was not to post about this subject again until a series of complicated negotiations were finished. I've stayed silent for two months, waiting for a final, final resolution which at last has arrived.
I can report that the Pasadena City College Board of Trustees finally formally reinstated Yves last Wednesday. He's back, he's safe, he's doing well, and everyone can now comment. He's getting back pay too!
In light of Friday's post, it's truly miraculous to consider that I was never fired during my turbulent years of struggle with mental illness. Of course, I'm from California, and Yves is from Togo, West Africa. I suspect, but cannot prove, that I was handled more gently because of my white privilege.
