Documents: Principal ran Antioch school with 'fear and intimidation'
Dec 21, 2015 6:37 AM -
Antioch Upper Grade School employees accused Principal Mike Zarco of being "cruel and unfair" and of mistreating them, district documents revealed, prompting an internal investigation that preceded Zarco's resignation in November. "Many employees conveyed that Mr. Zarco 'runs the building with fear and intimidation and will do whatever it takes to get rid of someone he doesn't like,'" a memo from the Antioch Elementary District 34 human resources department said. "It is apparent that some staff has the perception that he is mean, biased, unprofessional and dishonest."
