More on Teacher Who Put Up a Picture of the Sitting President « Media Distortions »

This is getting really interesting.

Here is a good summary with assertions broken out.

At this point, I'm not sure who is telling the truth, but the way the assertions shake out, someone is lying. Particularly: she says she never brought politics in and wouldn't touch politics with a 10-foot pole in the classroom vs. the administrator's assertions that she offended students with partisan harangues.

If her story is correct, the school administration was way out of line. However, in my experience, someone steeped in the political infighting endemic to school administration would be slightly more credible than a single individual. To tell the truth, I'm beginning to think that she was trying to seize a 'moral' high ground upon which to base a 'wrongful dismissal' argument or something.

Advantage: School Administration (barring more definitive information).
