Elizabeth Warren: Fired for Being Pregnant, or Quit the Job?

Elizabeth Warren

Several times on the campaign trail, presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren has referred to a time early in her career when she was fired for being pregnant.

After graduating from the University of Houston, she taught children with disabilities, a job she says she loved.  Warren has noted that the principal refused to hire her back for another year when it became apparent she was pregnant.

At a town hall in Carson City, NV, Warren told the audience:

“By the end of the first year, I was visibly pregnant, and the principal did what principals did in those days,” she said. “Wish me luck and hire someone else for the job.”

That description doesn’t square with a 2008 video of an interview with Warren where she describes the events differently.

In the video, Warren said:

“My first year post-graduation, I worked — it was in a public school system but I worked with the children with disabilities. I did that for a year, and then that summer I actually didn’t have the education courses, so I was on an ’emergency certificate,’ it was called.  I went back to graduate school and took a couple of courses in education and said, ‘I don’t think this is going to work out for me.’ I was pregnant with my first baby, so I had a baby and stayed home for a couple of years, and I was really casting about, thinking, ‘What am I going to do?'”

It’s possible that the principal didn’t hire her back, but that Warren didn’t want to disparage the principal with the story in 2008.  Or, it could be that painting herself as the victim of discrimination is a valuable tool in the current environment.

    • sounds like her whole life has been a lie, she has become a total idiot, which of course only the dems can agree understand and with, she just keeps spinning her web of lies, that is dangerous to all like a black widow!

  1. I think your last reason was the true one, she wants to be seen as discriminated against. The victim card plays well with the hatred of our country the liberals are pushing!!! Everything about our Great Nation is racists, biggoted, masoginistic or in some other way disgusting or revolting to Democrats!!!

  2. So, I’m guessing that the “Principal” of the school Warren was at is either deceased or incapable of being asked what actually happened. (Please note the response, if any, and then remember which side of the political spectrum educational professionals almost universally fall into.)
    I’d be curious to know.
    But, considering her life-long deception (Has ANYONE gone back into her EARLY records to see what racial group her parents registered her in? Like on her BC?), as to her “Cherokee” (more likely ‘Cheroot’) “heritage”, she’s probably lying through her teeth.
    At least that’d be my take on her.

  3. OUR CURRENT STUDENTS ARE HAVING TROUBLE LEARNING WHAT IS CURRENTLY TAUGHT IN SCHOOLS. WHAT PERCENTAGE OF STUDENTS HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE TO BE ABLE TO GO TO COLLEGE. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE CURRENT CURRICULA? IT IS NOT GETTING THEM THE KNOWLEDGE THEY NEED TO ENTER COLLEGE. THE SCHOOLS NEED TO HAVE COLLEGE PREP CLASSES SO THEY CAN PASS THE REQUIREMENTS TO ENTER COLLEGE. TAKE SURVEYS WHICH SCHOOLS ARE PREPARING STUDENTS TO ENTER COLLEGE.

  4. During those days if you were a teacher and pregnant you DID have to leave your job.
    Stop looking for lies to spread.
