GOODYEAR, AZ - On Monday, dozens of out of work teachers from Bradley Creemos Academy in Goodyear are fighting back.
"What breaks my heart the most, is thinking that our kids are thinking we abandoned them," said one pre-k teacher's assistant.
Standing behind their attorney, former teachers and staff of the now-shuttered charter school are accusing the school's owners of using state funds to live a life of luxury.
"There were things that were purchased on personal credit cards that school funds were used to pay off, the janitorial staff for the school was used to clean his personal residence," Attorney Quacy Smith described.
He's talking about Daniel Hughes, the owner of the now defunct Bradley Creemos Academy Charter School.
