Fox News has reported that Tim Latham, the non-renewed (fired)teacher was rehired and his contract has been renewed. Isn't it a shame that an evidently high-performing teacher has to fight to keep his job because of his political philosophy? Where's the justice in this situation?
I don't think that merely rehiring Mr. Latham without any explanation other than that he was the victim of a faulty evaluation process, is an acceptable explanation. I don't want to belabor the point but this whole situation SUCKS.
Two points and I'll stop. One, this is all the evidence you need to know that the public education system is broken. If people can be fired for their point of view, what does that teach our children about honest debate and dissent in our country? Two, I wonder if any action was taken against this assistant principal for her tyrannical and un-American intolerance of viewpoints different from her own? So much for tolerance and diversity, eh?
I will continue to monitor this situation. I can't let it drop. My outrage and disgust will not let me. As I said, this situation should scare the hell out of you. If it doesn't, are you an American?
