Petitioner did not report his disciplinary history as a California educator—including that he had been placed on administrative leave, that his employer had not renewed his contract, and that his teaching credential had been suspended following allegations of unprofessionalism—on his applications for a Georgia teaching certificate.  Although the California disciplinary action and associated non-renewal of his employment contract would not serve as grounds for revocation, Petitioner’s concealment thereof constituted a serious violation that warranted revocation of his Georgia teaching certificate.
