A tiny school at the bottom of the Grand Canyon is at the heart of two lawsuits.

One was filed by a former teacher —  who only lasted a short time at Havasupai Elementary.

Ricardo Cano is the education reporter for The Arizona Republic and azcentral.com. He and a colleague spoke with the former teacher, and others associated with the school, and pored over hundreds of pages of documents for an article on the school and some of its problems.
