That school district is messed up
They invest millions recently for a school that replaces textbooks with Ipads and many other transitions to electronics
and they are now so short on money for structure upgrades to a 40 year old elementary school that they cancel them and also forbid buses to pick up students within a 2 mile radius of the schools.
Yet they can waste money for an investigation on a nonthreatening comment on social media

This makes me angrier than what she said.
So she has a weak stomach, big deal. Expressing a distaste towards gay marriage does not automatically make someone a "danger to gay students". That is ridiculous. She is entitled to her opinion, and facebook is a perfectly suitable medium for expressing opinions, as long as you're comfortable with sharing that opinion with every bloody person you know.
If she begins verbally abusing gay students in the classroom, by all means fire her. This zero tolerance for intolerance bull# makes me want to throw up.

It's not so much that anyone expects the teacher during school hours to treat his gay students more harshly or unfairly because of that (and he should be punished if that were the case). It's only due to his influence as a figure of respect and authority and the school district is very much justified in their decision.
