New Jersey teachers in the news for comments on stuttering and LGBT display

    Not a great week for New Jersey educators. Or their students, for that matter.

    Earlier this week, the New York Times published the story of a 16-year-old student taking classes at the County College of Morris, where the student says a professor told him his stuttering is disruptive to the class.

    Today, the Associated Press reports a Union Township high school teacher posted a note to her Facebook page calling the school’s LGBT display and homosexuality “perverted.” The comment has since been removed from the teacher’s Facebook page, and the district has not commented. You can read more about the Morris County student Philip Garber Jr., here. He’s since transferred to another class.
