Default A student in my classroom secretly recorded

Texas

A student in my classroom secretly recorded my classroom. I was called into the office and was asked to to resign. i wouldn't resign, sot they put me on adminstrative leave until a full investigation has been done. My first question is it legal for a student to record my classroom? 2. i asked to hear the evidence they had against me and was told no. Im at a lost as to what I need to do. I want to start looking for a new teaching job, but I don't know if I can since I am under investigation. I am 100% confident when the investigation in done my name will be cleared!

You're only entitled to hear the evidence if you are criminally prosecuted or end up in civil court.

Are you on leave with pay?

If not, then it's the equivalent of a termination and you should file for unemployment and look for another job.

If you are still being paid, then just stick it out and see how it goes.

Not sure what they recorded--only you know but if you think it might not be proper it probably wasn't.

And if not proper, in their opinion, they unfortunately can dismiss you.

Of course you can challenge it in court but unless you are SURE to win who wants that all over the public record?

In this scenario it is good to wait for the investigation report.
