Ben Shapiro email gets teachers fired who disagreed with school's trans bathroom policy
Two Oregon teachers who believe students should use bathrooms that correspond with their birth gender were fired after an investigation uncovered an email to conservative commentator Ben Shapiro as evidence they used school facilities to work on a political campaign.
GOP SENATORS DEMAND TEACHERS UNION DISCLOSE IF IT IS COLLECTING INFO ON CRITICAL RACE THEORY OPPONENTSNorth Middle School fired Damiano and science teacher Katie Medart last Thursday after an investigation found they violated the district's policy of using school facilities to work on a political campaign, and presented the email to Shapiro as evidence.
Both former teachers believe students should be required to use "anatomically-correct" bathrooms unless single-user "gender-neutral" bathrooms are built, and oppose legislation that would require teachers to use students’ preferred pronouns.
The pair had posted a video and launched a website to support their beliefs on LGBT matters, which they dubbed the "I Resolve Movement."
"People are allowed to have discussions with people about political topics on their own time.
I'm sure there are people in the lunchroom who talked about Trump versus Biden."
The two former teachers faced backlash for their stances earlier this year, with one middle schooler starting a petition for them to be fired.
An independent investigation was launched into the teachers, and school board members voted 4-3 for their termination.
"This was specifically demonstrated in emails she sent to Daily Wire host Ben Shapiro."
"Even if they did use it to some degree, it was de minimus.
You know this is the sort of thing that might require a letter of reprimand or something certainly not firing."
