Williamsburg Middle School principal Kathleen Francis says the superintendent of Arlington Public Schools wants her gone, so she's going, but not quietly.

In a letter to the school's community, Francis announced she is resigning effective in March, and she cited harassment from Superintendent Patrick Murphy as the reason.

Francis filed a federal EEOC complaint alleging harassment based on her gender and age.

Murphy sent a letter to the community denying Francis's accusations.
