Hartley adds the Georgia PSC also opened an investigation on Dr. Dallemand and Alisha Allen-Cart after Allen-Carter filed a sexual harassment complaint on Dr. Dallemand.
The Georgia PSC also revoked Thomas Tourand’s teaching certificate, said Hartley.
John Grant, The Chief Investigator with the PSC, said Dr. Dallemand may never be able to teach again in the US.
"The revocation is reported to a national database. Most states recognize revocations from any other state and will not allow that individual to be certified in any of the states in the continental United States," explained Grant.
Grant adds educators who have an open investigation with the commission can still teach until there is a final decision. He also explained the educators will have 30 days from the notification to either accept or appeal the commission’s decision. We’re told the notice letter will be sent on Monday.
"Any case the commission makes a decision on that is appealed is transferred from the Professional Standards Commission over to the Attorney General’s office," noted Grant.
