Teacher Who Weds Wants to Get
On the Pension Roll for Teachers
Is Former Principal Lulu Hunt of
the Miller Park school entitled to a
pension for long service as teacher
in the Omaha schools?
The former principal wants to
The Board of Education says she
is not. The former principal did not
stop to argue the matter with mem
bers of the board. Oh, no. She was
busy with other matters. When she
resigned in the spring, she resigned
upon the request of Cupid, for she
was married a few weeks later.
But in spite of the fact that she
married and went to Massachusetts
to live, she did not give up the idea
of getting a pension from the Omaha
Board of Education.
She engaged an attorney to look
into the legal phases of the matter,
and this is quietly going on at the
present time.
A teacher in the Omaha schools is
generally understood to be entitled to
a pension when she has taught thirty
five years.
Extra time is allowed those who
teach in the summer schools.
Soldiers of the regular army count
service in the Philippines and Alaska
as double time when recording years
of service looking toward getting a re
tirement pension.
Well, some such system is under
stood to obtain in the school teaching
service in Omaha with regard to serv
ice in teaching in summer school.
"I taught five summers when I
didn't really care to do so, just to help
me on the required time to get the
pension allowance," said Miss Hunt
betore she lett umaha. And now
they are trying to keep me from the
Miss Hunt believed she had ade
quate precedent for her claim for a
pension, but the board said "No."
She quoted Former Superintendent
Davidson as saying that summer
school should count toward the pen
sion claim, and declared she had met
all the requirements as Davidson had
set them down years ago.
