The Department Of Education is investigating a Queens high school principal amid allegations of racism.
Protesters gathered in front of DOE headquarters in Lower Manhattan on Monday, demanding a probe into Pan American International High School Principal Minerva Zanca.
Fellow teachers say her own assistant principal is among those accusing Zanca of hostile behavior towards at least three African-American teachers at the Elmhurst school.
Accusers say Zanca used racist language to describe two of those teachers shortly before they were fired last year.
"When you put these things together, it paints a picture of three people who were professionals, who were good at their craft, and who were robbed basically of their teaching careers and we're not going to stand for it. We're here to get justice," said John Flanagan, a former teacher at Pan American International High School.
DOE officials note there have been no prior investigations into the principal.
