Parents ask LAT to remove teacher’s rating after he commits suicide

Los Angeles Times
The Times says Rigoberto Ruelas didn’t leave a suicide note and “it remained unclear why he took his life,” but others say he was depressed over his score on the paper’s online teacher-rating database. The teachers union has called on the Times to take down the database, and many parents also asked that Ruelas’ page be removed. || Related AP story.
