I have a question about present & future tenses here:
Hegwood, who taught English at Duncanville High School, was placed on unpaid leave Monday. She apologized in a statement Thursday and submitted her resignation, but the school board rejected a resignation and instead fired her with cause. That doesn't affect a teacher's pension, but it makes him or her ineligible for unemployment benefits, and future employers are told the teacher didn't leave in good standing, school district spokeswoman Lari Barager said.
The act of telling happens only in the future with future employers. So, the present tense in "future employers are told..." seems off. Would "future employers will be told ...." be better?
