School Sides With Biased Teacher in Oklahoma

with one comment

“Proof came today, The mother met with the school and they state that they will FAIL the student if she writes this paper on this topic and won’t even read it. AUTOMATIC “F” just for the topic. I’m sorry, even if she is not for gay marriage this is not OK, grade a paper on merits, not your person thoughts!

Please email the school at:
Thank you.”

That was a comment left yesterday afternoon on the original blog entry about Gale Applegate, a teacher in Oklahoma.  Incredibly, with people from around the country, world!, contacting them, they opted to turn up their nose and announce that they SHARE in her bigotry!  That’s a slap in the face.

Apparently, the email address link for the Dean of Students was either bogus or has been changed.  The link no longer works.  However, there are other ways to contact the school and the superintendent.

Superintendent Rita Ford

Principal Garret Davis

Eufaula High School
1st & Woodland
Eufaula, Oklahoma 74432-2410
Phone: 918.689.2556
Fax: 918.689.1099

The hope is that everyone will continue voicing their outrage as such a flagrant show of bigotry and intolerance.  Oh, and suggest that they read today’s Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruling on same-sex marriage.

  1. I wonder if enough people comment on this situation if they’ll do the same turn around that the Susan G Komen Foundation did? And maybe fire the principal too?
