San Francisco Teachers Fight For Their Jobs After Speaking About LGBTQ Student Outreach
I saw this trending on Twitter this week and thought it was an interesting post. Two San Fransico school teachers are now fighting for their jobs after they were secretly recorded talking about LGBTQ student outreach. A conservative writer wound up with a recording of the conversations and it only made matters worse.
She published a story Nov. 18 headlined “How Activist Teachers Recruit Kids,” criticizing Caldeira and Baraki for actions they had seen as proper: keeping club members’ identities confidential from parents and finding a couple of potential members by viewing their online activity in class.
Here’s more. The two teachers involved have received violent threats. And there’s a comment that states there are kids who are out in school, but not out in their homes. And I’m not surprised. Overcoming the shame that has been put upon LGBTQ kids by these ignorant conservative zealots is not simple. We know we are gay by the time we are in middle school. Gay kids don’t need conservatives telling them otherwise.
