  • Conservative Teacher Candidate Claims Job Discrimination

    College of LawBy Chris Miranda

    Leftists-especially in academia-claim to be the most tolerant, most compassionate, most open members of our society.  Yet, there's new evidence that leftists aren't walking the walk, and just talking the talk, when it comes to tolerance and open-mindedness.

    Teresa Wager, an outstanding alumnus at the University of Iowa law school writing center, was passed up after applying to a teaching job in 2007.  There were two open positions available, and one was given to a candidate with no prior teaching experience.  The second position was left vacant.

    Teresa had worked as a lawyer for the Family Research Council and the National Right to Life Committee in Washington D.C., to defend traditional marriage, end euthanasia, and stop a women's so-called right to exterminate her child. 

    Coincidence?  

    Teresa is taking her evidence of discrimination by the school to federal court. Read the rest of the story in Newsmax.

    • This happens a lot even in the CA public school system where I am. I know of teachers and staff who were reassigned for no reason and put into a new position that was so stressful and untenable that they resigned. The one common factor was that they all held a conservative world view. It really is unfair when, despite having good evaluations and attendance, an elite get to decide who will stay and get vested into STRS/PERS, the retirement system and who won't. Administrators claim to care about "bullying" but fail to see it in themselves vis-a-vis their treatment of their staff when they look in a mirror.

    • Horrible writing, and the conclusion of this post is an ad ignorantiam conclusion. This could be an example in a text book of slanted reporting and improper sentence structure.
