Bigoted Educators

More nonsense from folks who pretend to be in a profession called education.

A federal grand jury punished a public school superintendent for rejecting a vice-principal applicant because she refused to remove her children from a private Christian school.

The jury unanimously said the constitutional rights of Karen Jo Barrow were violated and ordered former Greenville, Texas, Independent School District Superintendent Herman Smith to pay back wages of $15,000 and $20,000 in punitive damages.

My questions is, why didn't the school board fire the Superintendent for such bigotry?

Another example of a random jury having more sense than elected folks who claim to be leaders.
