Complaint: Student suspended from PCC for asking for English-only

TUCSON - A nursing student at Pima Community College is claiming she was suspended and called a bigot by school officials.

Terri Bennett, 50, filed a legal complaint claiming the nursing director accused her of discrimination against Mexican Americans.

The allegations of discrimination came after Bennett filled out an anonymous evaluation sharing her preference of no Spanish in the classroom.

Two weeks following the evaluation, Bennett says she was met by campus security to notify her she had been suspended, according to the claim.

As of Thursday, there has been no response from Pima Community College on the allegations.
