“The Riverdale Board of Education approved a second-year teaching contract for a young Elizabeth Warren, documents show”
2020 Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) continues to tell crowds that she did not retain a teaching job years ago because of her visible pregnancy.
A video recently surfaced of her telling a very different version of the story in 2007. New documents further complicate Warren’s telling of the events.
Collin Anderson of the Washington Free Beacon has the story:
County Records Contradict Warren’s Claim She Was Fired Over Pregnancy
The Riverdale Board of Education approved a second-year teaching contract for a young Elizabeth Warren, documents show, contradicting the Democratic presidential candidate’s repeated claims that she was asked not to return to teaching after a single year because she was “visibly pregnant.”
Minutes of an April 21, 1971, Riverdale Board of Education meeting obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show that the board voted unanimously on a motion to extend Warren a “2nd year” contract for a two-days-per-week teaching job. That job is similar to the one she held the previous year, her first year of teaching. Minutes from a board meeting held two months later, on June 16, 1971, indicate that Warren’s resignation was “accepted with regret.”
Warren’s claim that she was dismissed after her first year of teaching because she was pregnant has become a cornerstone of her stump speeches. She has used it to both explain her jump from teaching into the legal world as well as to showcase the difficulties that women face in the workplace. The principal of the school she worked at in the early 1970s, Warren has said, “showed [her] the door” at the end of the school year because she was “visibly pregnant.”

She has been telling people that she was a victim of sexism, but this revelation completely contradicts her account:
“The resignation of Mrs. Elizabeth Warren…was accepted with regret”

Tucker Carlson covered this last night, and as you’ll see in the video, Warren’s claim about not being rehired for being pregnant isn’t something she said once off the cuff. She has repeatedly said this:
