Ex-Teacher Files Suit Over Release

An ex-teacher at Frankton Elementary School is filing a federal lawsuit claiming the school violated her right to free speech by firing her for criticizing school curriculum in a February Facebook post. According to the Herald Bulletin, Jennifer McWilliams, had concerns that a new “social and emotional” curriculum called “The Leader in Me,” inappropriately mixed church and state. Reportedly, McWilliams used her personal computer and phone after school hours to post her concerns on Facebook and was later told by school officials that she could resign or be fired.
