Centner Academy Won’t Employ COVID-19 Vaccinated Employees, Citing Debunked Theory

CBS Miami

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The owners of an expensive Miami private school don’t want their teachers and employees getting the COVID-19 vaccine, citing a debunked anti-vaccination theory.

CBS News obtained a copy of an email sent by the Centner Academy to its parents on Monday that reads, in part:

“Until further notice, we ask any employee who has not yet taken the experimental COVID-19 injection, to wait until the end of the school year. We also recommended that all faculty and staff hold off on taking the injection until there is further research available on whether this experimental drug is impacting unvaccinated individuals. It is our policy, to the extent possible, not to employ anyone who has taken the experimental COVID-19 injection until further information is known.”

The school, which charges almost $30,000 a year per student, is run by Leila and David Centner. It’s a fairly new school, which just opened in September of 2020 and was featured in CBS4 Miami Proud segment in October of 2020.

The email appears to be tying employment to the vaccine, threatening legal action would be taken if staff lied about getting the vaccine.

Which made CBS4’s Keith Jones wonder, is this even legal?

“This is a private school. It’s not a public school. So generally a private employer in Florida can fire someone for any reason or no reason at all,” said employment lawyer Carter Sox with Gallup Auerbach.

Sox said firing someone for getting the vaccine is legal in this case. But there appears to be some recourse if fired personnel want to fight it.

“If a teacher says they have a medical condition, and it discriminates against their right to get the vaccine,” Sox said.

As the email began to make nationwide headlines, the United Teachers of Dade released a statement, which read, in part:

“As shamefully seen by the actions of the illegally run and uncertified Centner Academy, these schools not only teach misinformation and peddle propaganda, they punish teachers who try to protect themselves and their families. We are horrified by the unsafe conditions and labor violations that colleagues at schools such as this one have to endure due to lack of union representation and contract rights.”

CBS4 News has been told one teacher has already resigned, but it’s not clear if it was in direct result of this policy.

In the meantime, teachers are concerned and so are medical experts, like FIU’s infectious disease specialist Dr. Aileen Marty.

Dr. Marty said the Centners are promoting a debunked theory that states people who are vaccinated can spread a different type of disease to individuals standing near them.

“It shows me that the author has a very primitive understanding of what a vaccine is and really no understanding of the scientific process,” she said.

The email goes on to list “many unknown variables” for their decision and states:

“Tens of thousands of women all over the world have recently been reporting adverse reproductive issues from being in close proximity with those who have received any one of the COVID-19 injections.”

They also claim, “No one knows exactly what may be causing these irregularities, but it appears that those who have received the injections may be transmitting something from their bodies to those with whom they come in contact.”

Their email cites no scientific evidence or authority for this.

Dr. Marty told CBS4 that this is heartbreaking, and she is devastated because she says there is no basis in science for any of the misinformation that the school is putting out. She also noted that it’s particularly “egregious,” that you have a school designed to educate kids promoting this sort of false and misleading information about the vaccine.

CBS4 News reached out requesting an interview with someone from the school, but they simply sent an email reiterating what was in the email sent to the parents, which stated:

“We’re doing what we think is in the best interest of the children because children shouldn’t be around teachers who are vaccinated.”

  1. When I hear ‘deboonked’, I am then pretty sure the deboonked story is true – especially if the ‘White House’, SNOPES, FactCheck, MSM, CDC, etc., did the deboonking.

    Too much evidence coming in – first-hand accounts and real experts – not the Bought & Sold type, are finding this to be true and are concerned.

    1. An excerpt from the article:

      “Soon after moving to Miami Beach, the couple started the David and Leila Centner Foundation, a charitable organization that, among other things, helped build a catering school for Lotus House, a long-term shelter for women and their children.

      After that, the couple went about creating their own private school by buying properties and hiring teachers. They consulted with Harvard lecturer and Happiness Studies Academy founder Tal Ben-Shahar, who created the emotional intelligence aspect of the curriculum, and Lucy Lien, director of a Minneapolis charter school that specializes in Chinese language instruction.”

      I don’t think I was as tired as I thought. Being aligned with harvard ‘israeli’ psycho-babblers and being billionaire philanthropists puts them in the “birds of a feather” category. Not buying this.

      1. Spot on, Martist. Who else would create an “emotional intelligence” curriculum?!!

        We ain’t gotta feel what they wants us ta feel.



  2. “It shows me that the author has a very primitive understanding of what a vaccine is and really no understanding of the scientific process,” she said.

    Well, little cunt face, why don’t you elaborate on exactly what The Scientific Process for developing a vaccine is? Cunt fk mthrfkr, dbl speak maggotry…..

    Primitive?, like following all the well established protocols for the development of a said vaccine and then getting approval for such? Now how long does that take, primitively speaking?

    How about accepting total liability for any side affects? Why would something so wonderful and so safe, not be proudly stood behind by the makers of such a wonderful, safe (albeit, experimental) vaccines? What is the fear?

    I can’t make any product, market and sell it, that might cause even a single death, and not be liable…its just not possible! But if its a Pharmaceutical, then by all means, NO LIABILITY!

    I have zero faith in Any Vaccine, especially when you study what is in them, but hey these are the same scum that sell you soda pops where the caramel is developed through aborted fetal stem cells if I am not mistaken. Research Pepsi, I’m sure there was an article about that in the past here at the trenches.

    DTNWO, this is who and what this is all about…..Covid-19 my ass, it’s Zika, It’s ebola, it’s sars-2 all fear gobbledegook pablum for the masses.

    Where did the annual flu go?

    1. Re: “I can’t make any product, market and sell it, that might cause even a single death, and not be liable…it’s just not possible! But if its a Pharmaceutical, then by all means, NO LIABILITY!”

      That’s one powerful point, Norm. If our Bill of Rights was in place, that right there would bring down the whole poisoning machine.


  3. So in that debunking we’re hearing outrage over those employees having to openly say whether or not they’ve been vaccinated, but no outrage is shown regarding airlines and many other enterprises that are doing the very same thing.

    Beyond the debunking debacle… it’s interesting to see the tables being turned, where it’s being reported that the vaccinated are endangering the unvaccinated. Who’s being made to squirm now?

    The circus keeps getting new acts.


  4. Eerily related, CNN is currently running this headline:

    “The quiet radicalism of Biden’s first 100 days”

    Seems showing up in a suit and attempting to read a teleprompter is profoundly “radical.”


    1. They just added this:

      “CNN Poll – Majority of Americans approve of Biden and his priorities in first 100 days”

      How they try to sway us. They live in a parallel universe, ever contorting reality and plotting the demise of all not under their influence.


  5. Well if this “conspiracy theory” is “debunked” then why even bother to bring up the whole scenario? Way back when (right after I was married to hubby) said hubby told me this: if the media makes a claim, believe the opposite. If the crowd says one thing, believe the opposite.
    Two non-conformists…what a couple we make! Bwahahahahahahahahahahah!
    (And I think this school made a very good decision, BTW. Do NOT Comply!)
