2. I'll be following this one reeeeallly closely.

 

>>>The district had previously refused to approve the trip and threatened Bigham with discipline if he took unauthorized leave to attend. >>>>>

So basically they ( i.e. district hacks and parasites ) are claiming that he's neglecting his work by attending events that honor him ( and by extension the district that employs him ) for being state Teacher of the Year.

And he's NOT being restricted and retaliated against because he's openly gay. And TALKS about it.


Riiiiiiiiggght.

I had a similar kerfuffle w. NYC ed bureaucracy in 2012. Deliberate, systematic creation of hostile working environments for teachers generally .... essentially the policy of this fed.DOE ( i.e. the DOE of Duncan and Obama)........emboldens and enables local boards to pull crap like this and get away with it.

Madflo... if it's ok, I'm going to repost this to LGBT forum.

3. Sure, go ahead.

Brett wants it shared. He copied my twitter feed to let me know. He wants and needs attention being called to this.
