Pennsylvania school district cans teacher who participated in Washington, DC protest

  • A school district in Pennsylvania has “temporarily relieved” a teacher after a photo revealed he was among those present at Wednesday’s protest in Washington, DC.
  • But the Allentown School District will not say if the teacher merely was among those marching in protest of the Electoral College vote, or if he participated in the storming of the Capitol Building.
  • In a Thursday message posted to the district website, Superintendent Thomas Parker wrote, “the district has an obligation to respect the First Amendment rights of our staff and students.”
  • The teacher has been temporarily relieved of his teaching duties until the School District can complete a formal investigation of his involvement.
  • Parker and the district refused to identify the teacher and where the (allegedly) offensive image was shared.
  • In a Thursday message posted to the district website, Superintendent Thomas Parker wrote “We understand that many members of our community are upset by the image. At the same time, the district has an obligation to respect the First Amendment rights of our staff and students.
  • District Solicitor John Freund said that “only after knowing all the facts can the district make a decision that balances First Amendment rights with the higher standards set for public school teachers.”
  • In a Morning Call op-ed, Paul Muschick notes “we shouldn’t cast judgment” until the exact circumstances of the teacher’s activities are known.
