Teacher suspended for being a lesbian is back to work


A lesbian art teacher from Mansfield, Texas, has been reappointed almost a year after she was asked to leave following the parents’ complaint over her sexuality. There was an international outcry last year when Stacy Bailey was placed on paid administrative leave and she filed a discrimination lawsuit against her employers. She is now due to start a new academic year, but will now be teaching art to students in grades nine to 12 and will be based at Lake Ridge High School instead of the elementary school students she used to work with before the incident, and the attorneys believe that it was done deliberately to put her in an uncomfortable environment which would make her resign, but she is not going to do so. The school said it completed its internal investigation, however Bailey’s attorney has suggested that if it really was done, then only formally. The school district denied the allegations The school suggested in a statement to the Star Telegram in May that Bailey had failed to follow district guidelines, which state that “controversial subjects” be taught in an “impartial and objective manner.”
