A claim against a Missouri middle school teacher of religious intolerance against a Christian student has been determined to be baseless, according to one school official.
The parents of 12-year-old Loyal Grandstaff accused a teacher from Bueker Middle School of attacking their son's religious convictions after the teacher reportedly stopped the student from reading the Bible during some free time.
A New Jersey school district broke the law when it fired a substitute teacher after he gave a curious middle school student a Bible for academic purposes, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ruled in a mid-December decision released to the public this week.
The federal agency ruled it was an act of discrimination for Phillipsburg School District to fire substitute teacher Walt Tutka in 2013 after he gave a Bible to an interested student who had approached him privately and asked to be shown where in the Bible the saying "the first will be last and the last will be first" is written.
Tutka, who spoke with Fox News, said that the incident started during in October of 2012 when he held the door open for the line of students exiting his classroom on their way to lunch. As the last student walked out the door, Tutka told the student, "just remember, the first will be last and the last will be first." more >>
We live in a world where bullying is happening more than it has ever been before. Letting go of stereotypes and labels allows us to realize that we are more alike than you may think. These students get a chance to stop everything and learn to understand one another.
A movement like this can be very crucial in a time when bullying has been very bad. It may even save the life of someone going through a very difficult time. Stopping what we do during our normal day to learn what each of us go though can help us out immensely. When we learn about each other we realize that we aren't so different after all. We all struggle, argue with loved ones, and stress over things in life.
If we bully one another during tough times, it can only make things worse. Students need to stop bullying and learn to love instead. more >>
