Jesus Take The Wheel:Teacher Resigns After Book He Read To 3rd Graders Sparks Controversy!
Lord have mercy readers a North Carolina teacher faces the anger, rage, fury, wrath, outrage, ire of some parents after giving a lesson on homosexuality to a group of third graders. Now, the teacher says he will resign at the end of the year. The incident began when Omar Currie, a 25-year-old openly gay teacher, read the book in an Efland-Cheeks Elementary School classroom in Efland, North Carolina.
The reading of the book was a response to one boy calling another boy a girl and “the term gay was used in a derogatory way,” according to Currie. “We talked about how the moral of the book was just you accept others the way they are,” Currie told ABC11. “Some of the kids said the book made them feel a little uncomfortable, and I told them that was fine.”
