SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) - State education officials say a Pennsylvania elementary school principal who was fired last year should be rehired with full back pay.

The Scranton Times-Tribune (https://bit.ly/IEEHiA ) reports that Gwendolyn Damiano was accused of mishandling state tests and failing to evaluate teachers, and was fired by the school board last November.

But a state review found that the Scranton school district had insufficient evidence to fire Damiano, the former principal of Robert Morris Elementary School.

Damiano’s attorney says they’re happy with the ruling.

District personnel director William Gaynord couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.
